Monroe County Historical Association

The Monroe County Historical Association is pleased to announce a free presentation on the history of American trout fishing and the development of American fly-fishing techniques. Local angler, author, and artist Don Baylor will give his presentation, “The Poconos of Pennsylvania – Cradle of American Trout Fishing” as part of the Third Thursday Lecture Series. The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, August 17, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at the Stroud Mansion, 900 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.

In his presentation, Don Baylor will cover notable anglers, destinations, and literature important to the development of American trout fishing tradition at the turn of the 20th century and will make the case that the Pocono area was at least as important as the Catskills.

The Third Thursday Lecture Series is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. Light refreshments will be served. The presentation will be held on the 2nd floor of the Stroud Mansion, which is not handicap-accessible. For additional information or to make a reservation, please contact the Monroe County Historical Association office at (570) 421-7703 or email at
