A Brief History of Beaver Creek Anglers, Inc.
In 1987, a group of twenty-five fly fishermen in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area, got together to purchase a portion of improved stream at Beaver Creek and surrounding property. This property was part of the land originally owned by Rockwell. The group incorporated and became known as the Beaver Creek Anglers. The property and stream are nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by hemlocks and mountain laurel.
The organization hired a stream manager, Daryl Bassett, who has managed the stream to this day. Daryl’s experience and knowledge as a fisherman and a guide have made him an excellent choice to look after the stream.
The Beaver Creek Anglers is still mostly comprised of the original twenty-five shareholders, with the exception of several gentlemen who moved out of state or have since passed away. We now have more than forty shareholders.
The Anglers are operating the stream to provide a positive fishing experience for the area fishermen and to promote fishing as a sport for the young as well as the experienced fisherman.
