The October 2018 Brodhead Trout Unlimited Chapter meeting will feature Adam Nidoh who will discuss the history of the Lackawanna River, from the region’s coal mining boom to the present. How the history and geography of the river make it a special resource. Adam will then go into the seasons on the river, including the flies and techniques recommended for each. This includes the insect life and hatches, as well as other wildlife found along the river, including fisheries data collected from 4 years of our annual competition held on the river. Adam will also cover some primary access areas and what the future holds for the river.
