Why should you join the YBAC?

Think of it, trout fishing with bait or artificials– for trophy trout– in public waters all year long. If you would like to become a member of an organization that stocks over 35,000 trout each year, including many trophies over 20 inches, you should join the Yellow Breeches Anglers & Conservation Association, INC. The trout, provided by the PA Fish & Boat Commission, are raised in the club nursery and released throughout the year in the famed Yellow Breeches Creek in Cumberland County.
As a Member of the YBAC, you will join over 2,000 other anglers and conservationist from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and many other states across the country in help to preserve and enhance on one of the finest trout fisheries east of the Mississippi. Your annual dues go towards raising and stocking trout for public fishing, as well as maintaining the natural resource so precious to all of us. In addition, you will receive regular newsletters announcing stocking dates, volunteer opportunities and club activities.
The Yellow Breeches Anglers & Conservation Association, INC was founded in 1961 by a group of dedicated trout fishermen and conservationists. YBAC is part of the PA Fish & Boat Commission’s Cooperative Nursery Program. The Commission provides the club with fingerling trout to be raised and stocked in the Yellow Breeches as a supplement to the Commissions stocking. The area stocked with club trout covers over 20 miles of water open to the public fishing as well as certain special regulation areas, and Children’s Lake in Boiling Springs, PA. Stocking the Yellow Breeches begins two miles above Route 34 and continues to be area knows as Williams Grove. Stocking dates are scheduled in a manner which provides excellent trout fishing to the public year round!
