On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, the Doc Fritchey Chapter of TU held its bi-monthly membership meeting at the PA Fish and Boat Commission headquarters in Dauphin County. One of our chapter’s board members – Dr. Jim Suleski – gave a presentation that highlights the latest scientific research and findings on native brook trout and some common misconceptions surrounding these incredible fish.

Dr. Jim’s presentation was recorded and is available, in its entirety, on our YouTube channel. The video is included here:
