LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — Join a cast:  Joan Wulff; Trustee Don Trump Jr and son; actors Rip Torn and Olek Krupa; Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther and hosts the CFFCM Phelan family for a season opener for the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum.

The 2013 Trout Season Opener will be held on the heralded Willowemoc Creek of historic Catskill river charmed circle, just upstream from the CFFCM bridge at 9:30 a.m.

Following the ceremony, everyone will then return to the Museum for a hot cup of Agnes Van Put’s famous soups and socialize in the museum and view the fresh exhibits for 2013.  This year’s new exhibits will include Canada as the featured international country, NW Pacific Steelhead and their impact on the Great Lakes Fisheries, and Vest Accessories over the years.
