Connetquot Trips Scheduled for April 21 and October 13

 

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.

The trips are scheduled for:

 

  • Friday April 21, 2023

  • Friday October 13, 2023

Jeff Skelding, Friends of the Upper Delaware
Feb 16 Zoom

Join us February 16 when Jeff Skelding, Friends of the Upper Delaware River (FUDR) executive director shares with us the extremely important work done by FUDR, the only professionally staffed organization in the Upper Delaware River (UDR) watershed that works to protect and restore the river's ecosystem and the communities that surround it.

 

As Jeff says so well on FUDR's website, "while a fundamental objective of FUDR is to protect the fishery and its habitat for our sporting passion, the organization, led by its dedicated Board of Directors, has also established a broader presence and mission. FUDR cares about the people and the communities of the upper Delaware region and is committed to an agenda that is sensitive to the needs and desires of the people who live here, seeks to improve the economic health of the region, and works to protect and restore the tremendous natural resources values of this region."

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.
