God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited

Coudersport Elementary School Students Participate in Trout in the Classroom Release Day
On Tuesday, May 16, sixth-grade students at Coudersport Elementary released approximately 60 brook trout fingerlings into the First Fork of Sinnemahoning Creek under the Trout in the Classroom program sponsored by PA Trout Unlimited and the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission. 

Ms. Nicole Frame’s students received brook trout eggs in November and placed then in the classroom aquarium. After the eggs hatched, the students fed and nurtured the young ones for six months. Along the way they learned about stream ecology and the natural history of brook trout, Pennsylvania’s state fish.

The site of the release was the First Fork at the Austin Costello Sportsmen’s Club. Each student had decorated a cup in art class and placed the “name” of his/her fish on it. After releasing their fish, students spent the day engaged in a variety of conservation and recreation activities, including water quality testing, stream bug collecting and identification, bird capture and banding, tree planting, fly casting, and building blue bird nesting boxes. Students placed blue bird boxes around the club property and were thrilled to watch a pair of tree swallows move into one shortly after its placement. Lunch was provided by the Sportsmen’s Club.

The Release Day event was supported by a number of organizations and volunteers. Special thanks go to Dave Hauber (Audubon Society), Mark Popcheck (DCNR) Kim Lott (Sinnemahoning State Park), Nikki Ryan (Sinnemahoning Invasive Plant Management Area), Mary Hirst (Ole Bull State Park), Kim Bohn (McKean County Extension Office) and all the volunteers from God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the First Fork of the Sinnemahoning Watershed Association, and the Austin-Costello Sportsmen’s Club.
