My grandfather used to bring me to Glade Run Lake as a young boy to fish for trout from a boat. This was a unique experience for me because fishing from a boat for trout seemed odd, but was still a lot of fun.


I grew up fishing in Erie most weekends with my dad, and then lived there for 10 years where I continued to spend a lot of my time fishing. However, no matter how much time went by, I always remembered fishing from that small boat in Glade Run Lake.


When my wife and I were at Cranberry Community Days a few years ago, we saw the GRLC booth that was accepting donations from the community to rebuild the dam. Based on my fond memories of fishing at the lake, I just had to chip in.


The early memories of fishing with my grandfather will always be cherished.
