Donegal Trout Unlimited works on coldwater streams throughout Lancaster County. To help you locate sites where we're working, planning, or have done restoration work, the site now includes a map of the county's watersheds, with links to topographic maps for many of our projects.
We completed work on 2 projects on the Conowingo in 2016, one involving wetlands restoration, the other restoring the stream to its historic channel and preventing major farmland soil loss. A third, very large project is in the design and permitting stages, and will probably start in 2018.
We are planning work on several more sites on this stream, one of which has now been scheduled to begin in early September. A project at Drumore Township Park is now finished. Another project is now in the design & permitting stage, with yet another in the planning stage.
Work has begun on a project on this southern Lancaster County tributary to the Susquehanna which supports a population of wild brown trout.
We are planning work on this northern Lancaster County stream which supports populations of native brook trout as well as wild brown trout. The project is presently in the design & permitting stage.
A project on a tributary to the West Branch of this southern Lancaster County stream is in the planning stages.
Work on 3 sites upstream of Climbers Preserve, along Pennsy Road, has now been completed. A project to replace a bridge to one of the farms is pending.
