NATIONAL CAPITAL CHAPTER

​​CHAPTER OUTINGS
FOR 2017-2018


The Chapter dedicates these outings to memory of John Graebner who for many years enthusiastically organized these trips for the enjoyment

of our members.


We are nailing down the outings for 2017-2018 with the goal of coordinating our outings with the subject of the monthly programs, whenever possible.


November 4 & 5: Elk Creek guided Steelhead trip to Girard, PA. Fish two days on our overnight trip to fish Elk Creek (near Erie), PA for steelhead trout. Guides, lodging and some meals are included for a cost of approximately $550. This trip has been great fun, and usually sells out fast. Contact us if you are interested.

November: Brook Trout in Stony Creek, VA (Wintergreen Resort)

January:  On the James River fly fishing for Musky

March:  Orvis Trip to Belize for Saltwater Grand Slam: bonefish, tarpon & permit


April:  Float Trip on the North Branch of the Potomac

May:  Fishing Tournament Fundraiser for Fletcher's Cove restoration, Potomac River.

August:  White Fly Hatch on the Yellow
Breeches, Boiling Springs, PA.


September:   Our traditional Big Gunpowder Falls River event with lunch provided by the Chapter at the Backwater Angler, Parkton, MD (north of Baltimore). The Gunpowder River’s Catch and Release host to a wild, stream-bred population of brown trout. Consistent Coldwater releases from Prettyboy Reservoir create an cold water habitat that has landed the Big Gunpowder Falls River in Field and Stream's top 5 U.S. tailwaters and Trout Unlimited’s 100 best Trout Streams List.
