Dauphin County Anglers & Conservationists the nonprofit organization in charge of the E.J. Stackpole Memorial Nursery located on the beautiful Clarks Creek in Dauphin, Pennsylvania.

The stream at and around the nursery is a special regulation area. It is open to all children 15 and under and people with major disabilities. Around the clubhouse area, we have many areas that are accessible to people with disabilities.

At the nursery, we feed, raise, and care for approximately 8,000 trout per year. We are 1 of the 159 cooperative nurseries that helps raise and stock trout in Pennsylvania waters. We only receive the fingerling (baby) trout from the state at no cost to us. We are then responsible to supply the feed and raise the trout with our own funds and volunteer time.

Beyond raising the trout and caring for the grounds, we also host great events throughout the year.

We are able to do what we do with membership, sponsorship, and donor support. 

Please consider joining us in our mission.
