Fly Fishing Monocacy Creek 5/22

As we bring our 2011-2012 meeting/presentation schedule to a close, we invite you to fish with your fellow TU members.  This is a super time to fish the sulpher hatch on the Monocacy, and while this is not a "formal" meeting, it is a chance to see how other people approach this hatch and fishing in general.  Meeting place is the Illicks' Mill parking lot, along the stream on Illick's Mill Rd.  We will meet @ 6pm and fish until the fish stop biting.  See you there!

Bethlehem gets state grant money to improve Monocacy Creek




Bethlehem has received a $119,789 state grant for stream bank stabilization on the Monocacy Creek north of Illick’s Mill Road.

Bethlehem will have to come up with a 15 percent match to accept the state Department of Environmental Protection grant, said Ralph Carp, Bethlehem’s director of parks and public property.

The additional $17,968 will give Bethlehem about $137,757 for the project. That money can be used to pay for some stream bank stabilization and riparian buffer installation on the creek north of Illick’s Mill Road, Carp said.

The city hopes to conduct the work this year if it gets the state grant money before the start of trout spawning season in October, Carp said. Monocacy Creek is a class A wild trout stream.
