while fishing this weekend i received this on my windshield and thought some of you may be interested


dear fishermen and friends of yellow creek,

over the years the yellow creek coalition has worked to protect and enhance the yellow creek watershed. we have worked to maintain public access to these waters . we have constructed a parking lot for fishermenusing the fly project waters, and we have constructed a bridge and access roads to this lot. this year we completed the building of a new bridge and access road . the new road is now open to the parking lot .

all of these things have been paid for by donations from the yellow creek coalition members and from you, the fishing public. now we must pay for the debt incurred to complete the bridge . we must also pay taxes and do maintence on the new road and fly project .
we need your help the ycc is a non profit organization under section 501 c 3 of the irs code. we are asking for a donation on your part to help us to reduce the deb5 that we have incirred . you have been very generous in the past, and we need you to be so again. your donations are a large part of your funding. if you enjoy fishing these waters , please give what you can. we will give you a receipt and, in the case of big donations, written varification. you may use this tax write off on your taxes. your help is vital to our work . lets preserve yellow creek now and for future generations .

another way you can help, besides a donation, is to purchase a ticket and attend the third annual yellow creek coalition pig roast. this years event will be held on june 19, 2010 at ron lundquist's pavilion on jacks corner rd . the cost of a ticket 20$ we will have rod raffles 50/50 tickets and demos this even will be held from 1:00 to 5:00 pm with food being served from 2:00 to 4:30 pm tickets may be had from the following individuals : fred sherlock 814 766 3176 , randy buchanan 814 467 4034, and chuck winters 814 932 8841. for info regardint raffle prizes , directions to the picnic grounds , and lodging go to

The entire fly project is located on private property (including the parking area) and we should be so lucky that these guys go to so much trouble to keep this open. Fred lives on creek on the lower end of the project.

i totally agree. yellow creek is a great stream and we are so fortunate. we need to save it for the public which includes so many people who work so hard to keep it open. If we do not keep supporting the YCC the stream could fall into the wrong hands...not saying any names (spring ridge club)

flip............the 2 days i got to fish YC there were 4 fellows that were there from Ligonier , 2 retired brothers and 2 younger fellows all active TU members so i'm sure some of those pamphlets got passed around , how is the Loyalhanna fishing these days? From memory there was limited access there the last time i was down that way , it's been awhile. I truly believe that if those folks hadn't come up with a solution to the access problem on Yellow Creek we all would have lost a fine stretch of special regs water , by lost i mean that it probably would have ended up in the "beaves" hands and access denied. These folks deserve a medal for pulling this off and any help anyone can give , even a couple of bucks donation , will help to insure future access. They aren't out of the woods yet.
