42nd Annual Dinner Scheduled

Time: 6:00 - 9:00

Date: Friday, March 24, 2023

Place: The Pleasantville Country Club

110 Nannahagen Road

Pleasantville, NY


It has been a long time coming but our annual dinner is now scheduled for March 24. Tickets are $100 per person. This includes complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets.


The dinner is the only event that pays for Chapter activities, including: Trout in the Classroom (TIC) and monthly speakers. Even Zoom presentations cost something. And every year the Chapter contributes to Veterans activities, too.

Can't make it to the dinner?

Sometimes other things get in the way; it happens. But we would still appreciate a contribution. Every little bit helps. CLICK HERE TO HELP US.

 Trips Scheduled for April 21 and October 13


We have four trips scheduled for 2023.  We have been sponsoring two trips a year to Connetquot for a few years now.  These are always great trips.  It is an easy drive, easy access, and you will catch fish.  We rent the entire facility for the day, so it is just CWCTU there.  It's a great time to see other anglers on the water and share tips and techniques.

In addition to the Connetquot trips we have a trip to the Beaver Kill Valley Inn. Overnight trip with access to a private mile of the upper Beaverkill. 4-8 anglers depending on room accomodations desired.  April 25 - 27, 2023 (Tuesday - Thursday) .

We also have a trip to the West Branch Angler Resort for September 15 - 17, 2023 (Friday - Sunday).  This is an overnight trip limited to 6 anglers.

The trips are scheduled for:


  • Friday April 21, 2023. Connetquot

  • Tuesday - Thursday, April 25-27, Beaver Kill Valley Inn

  • Friday - Sunday, September 15 -17, West Branch Angler Resort (ONE SPOT LEFT, HURRY)

  • Friday October 13, 2023, Connetquot

Trip policy

Updated Paid Trip Policy

With an expanded list of paid trips during 2022, we want to take this opportunity to reacquaint chapter members with our participation and refund policy.


Paid trips are open to Croton Watershed Chapter Trout Unlimited (CWCTU) members and their immediate family members. From time to time the trip coordinator may allow other TU members to enroll after our members have first had an opportunity to sign up. Trip participation is on a first paid basis.


Participants who cancel at least 30-days in advance of a trip will receive a full refund. The Chapter will also issue a full refund if the participant cancels less than 30-days in advance and finds a suitable replacement. Although the trip coordinator will provide assistance in finding a suitable replacement, final responsibility for finding a replacement is the participant's. Participants cannot cancel less than 30-days in advance of a trip and apply their payment as a credit against a future trip.
