Past Events

Huron Creek Clean-Up (MTU Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists)

The MTU Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists sponsored a litter clean-up day along Huron Creek on Saturday, April 26th. While it was opening day of Trout Season it felt more like opening day of Deer Season. Three CCCTU members with the assistance of three youngsters logged 5 volunteer hours on the creek gathering litter along its bed and banks. It was interesting to note how the litter changed as cleanup progressed downstream from one retail outlet to the next.

Beginner Fly Fishing Day

Beginner Fly Fishing Day was held on Saturday May 10 from 1-4 pm at the East Houghton Waterfront Park. Twenty folks in ages from 6 65 turned out for the event on this pleasant spring afternoon. Vice President, Jeremy Shannon did a great job of demonstrating the basics to fly casting and fly tying along with covering the basics in fly fishing equipment and rigging up. Don Kreher assisted with some fly tying and Bill Leder, Jim Juntilla, Jim Baker and Shawn Hagan were on hand to assist and talk to our guests (photos).
