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. Another project which moved the streambed away from imperiled structures is complete except for planting. A very large project has just been funded, and will start in 2018.
We are working on several more sites on this wild brown trout stream. A project at Drumore Township Park is now finished. Another large project at Camp Andrews is now underway, with planting to begin in April 2018. An even larger project downstream is expected to also begin in 2018. A project on an unnamed trib is slated for 2019.
Work has now been completed 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 scheduled for 2018.
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 still pending.
