Susquehanna River Needs Your Help
December 18, 2012
Holidays are for reminiscing and sharing fishing stories with family and friends, so I would like to offer you the chance to share some of your memories of the Susquehanna River with your PFBC family.

The Susquehanna has been a friend and great company for many of us who have enjoyed the river over the years. Whether it is fishing, boating, floating or just sitting on the river bank watching the river flow by, the mighty Susquehanna really is part of our family heritage.
Right now our friend - the river - is in trouble and needs your help.

The government agencies in charge of protecting the river have gathered the facts which show that the fish in the river are sick. However, that has not been enough evidence to convince others in positions of authority to act.

Over the last several years, many of you have shared with us your personal stories about fishing the river and your concerns about the changes that are occurring. We invite you to visit our website and submit these personal stories about your good times on the river. Please include photos of big fish or creatures or tubing or boating on the river. Tell us about how you remember the river and how it compares to what you see today.

You can submit the stories online at:

This is your chance to make a holiday wish that the Susquehanna River gets healthy again and to show others that we really care about the river and why we care so much. I know that we can make a difference if we all work together to get our river back. Please help us to make our wish come true.

Thanks and happy holidays.

Your Director,
