We are pleased to announce that Ashley Wilmont has been named Program Director for the  PA Council. A major part of her responsibilities will be devoted to overseeing the Coldwater Heritage Partnership (CHP) program as well as Council’s Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program, plus a host of other Council-related duties. She will be working out of the PA Fish & Boat Commission’s Centre Region offices in Bellefonte, PA, and can be reached at c-awilmont@pa.gov or 814-359-5233.

Ashley is from Chester County in Southeastern Pennsylvania. During high school, she started a fly fishing club, volunteered with the Stroud Water Research Center, attended Exploring Careers Outdoors Camp, and was a Leon Chandler Award winner at the Rivers Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp hosted by Cumberland Valley Trout Unlimited in Boiling Springs, PA.

She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Environmental Studies from Penn State Altoona. During college, she served as Eco-Action Club President and was a liaison to the campus Sustainability Council. She also worked as a white water / fly fishing guide on the Youghiogheny River and its tributaries while also interning for the Washington County Redevelopment Authority under the Brownfields and Municipal Planning Manager.

After college, she worked in the camping and fly fishing department of the local Field & Stream store until obtaining a position with the Washington County Conservation District as an Erosion and Sediment Control and Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Road Program Technician. Wanting to be closer to more cold water resources, she was hired by the Fayette County Conservation District, working in the same capacity.

In her spare time she is a volunteer fly fishing instructor for Casting for Recovery in Western Pennsylvania and assists with Pittsburgh Project Healing Waters outings. She is a Trout Unlimited member and recently obtained her Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Fishing Skills Instructor certification. In her free time, she ties flies and enjoys pursuing both fresh water and salt water species on the fly.
