In accordance with the 2003 Federation Fly Fishers (FFF) Clean Water Resolution, the Adopt A Stream program has been lunched by FFF. This program provides a way for the clubs to watch over their local waters. WFFJ joins to this effort and adopts our local water, Willowemoc Creek in the Catskills from spring of 2006 by putting the sign up at the Power-lines Pool near the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum.

The group of WFFJ members are cleaning up and planting trees along the banks of Willowemoc Creek in the beginning of May. In the fall, we work on the tributaries for trout spawning. Individually, we clean up along the river and major the water quality through out the year.

WFFJ promotes C & R. Our concept of C & R is for protecting native and wild fish. If you want to eat fish, which you catch in the evening, it is okay to keep it, specially it is a stocked fish. Keep one for yourself.  But please do not keep native and/or wild fish for your friends and/or for reserving in freezer.

When you do C & R, please try not to keep fish more than a couple minutes out of the water. Be gentle when you release.

WFFJ is supporting Fly Fishing Team Japan and attending to the FIPS Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship and Conservation Symposium for the purposes of promoting C & R and exchanging conservation related information with the other anglers in the world.
