Chapter History


The Little Lehigh Chapter of Trout Unlimited was formed in 1978 and was one of the first Trout Unlimited Chapters in the State of Pennsylvania. The Chapter currently has nearly 200 members. Our home streams are those in the Little Lehigh Watershed and include: the Little Lehigh Creek, Jordan Creek, Leibert Creek, Trout Creek, Swabia Creek, Schaffer Run, Iron Run, Toad Creek, Spring Creek, Breinig Run, and Little Cedar Creek. Waters from these creeks make up the Little Lehigh Watershed and flow into the Lehigh River in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The Lehigh River ultimately empties into the Delaware River.


Our chapter is a part of the TU Pennsylvania Council’s Southeast Region. The two closest Southeast chapters are the Tulpehocken and Perkiomen chapters. And we regularly participate in joint programs with neighboring TU chapters in the Lehigh Valley which are in the Northeast Region: the Hokendauqua, Monocacy, and Forks of the Delaware Chapters.

Chapter Meetings


The Little Lehigh Chapter meetings have been suspended until further notice.

Chapter Projects


Our chapter is currently involved in three ongoing projects:


(1) We are currently sponsoring four Trout In the Classroom programs at local schools. Those schools are Lincoln Elementary in Emmaus, PA, Lehigh Career and Technical Institute in Schnecksville, PA, Whitehall-Coplay High School and Whitehall-Coplay Middle School in Whitehall, PA.


(2) A stream restoration project on Keystone Road, just upstream of the fish hatchery, in partnership with the Lehigh County Conservation District, PA Fish and Boat Commission, Allentown Parks Dept., and Trout Unlimited National.


(3) And we usually run at least one stream clean-up each year along sections of the Little Lehigh Creek.
