About Jersey Shore Trout Unlimited
Trout Unlimited's mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America's trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds. It is a private, non-profit organization with 125,000 members in 500 chapters nationwide. The Jersey Shore Chapter was established in Oct 1989.
The members of the Jersey Shore Chapter of Trout Unlimited primarily reside in the central New Jersey coastal counties of Monmouth and Ocean. Our conservation activities include yearly stream cleanups and helping with the Sea Run Brown Trout stocking program run by the New Jersey Department of Fish and Wildlife. Our members enjoy both fresh and saltwater fly fishing, and the chapter runs a variety of trips and educational activities throughout the year.
