Friends of Kaercher Creek gave away 80 hot dogs and a gallon and a half of chili to hungry anglers of all ages on opening day of trout season on March 30 at Kaercher Creek in Hamburg.
Fishing results were mixed, as some were having luck and others were hard pressed for a bite. The most unusual catch of the day that I heard was a youngster catching a 28-inch muskie on a worm.
Friends of Kaercher Creek will be holding their Spring Cleanup. Previously scheduled for April 20, it has been announced that the event has been postponed until May 4 due to weather forecast. The event is from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Volunteers should arrive at Kaercher Creek park by 8:30 a.m. to sign-in. Work will begin at 9 a.m. Those attending should bring simple gardening items, like a rake, bypass pruners or looper and work gloves. Dress for the weather, including proper footwear. Tasks will include those similar to last year's Spring and Fall cleanups.
A shore lunch will be provided to volunteers and bottled water will be supplied.
In case of rain, the event will take place on May 5, at the same times.
Anyone wanting to volunteer can let us know by visiting Friends Of Kaercher Creek on Facebook and posting a message or by calling Tim Mazaika at 610-562-4261 and leaving a message. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to earn community services hours for their club, group or organization.
