Drinks for Dinks

Fundraiser at TCO in Reading on Saturday.  TCO'sDrinks for Dinks
Come one, come all to support your Tulpehocken Creek fishery.  In its 3rd year, the "Drinks for Dinks" program raises money to continue the stocking and re population of Tulpehocken Creek, (The Tully), with fingerlings. These mini-trout are float stocked in the Fall, and will grow to nearly 8" by Spring. Alledgedly, some of these former 2013 troutlings have been landed pushing the 12" range! This fingerling program is important to the Tully as itproduces "almost wild" trout in both appearance and behavior.
Attending this event shows your dedication and support for the Tully. Prizes, raffles, BEER and food are all part of the day.  The proceeds from sales and the raffle all goes to stocking these munchkin trouts.
*This year our local Trout Unlimited Chapter has agreed to partner with us and match the funds raised to DOUBLE our yearly stocking!! This means we will stock about 3,000 fish this year... maybe more if YOU get off your duff and get here!
