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.
Kevin's Corner - August 2, 2021
The summer has been hot and wet for the most part, and trout fishing has been marginal at best on all rivers in the tri-state area. But things are improving with colder temps and drier days. Places to fish this time a year? The Pequest in New Jersey, the Little Lehigh in Pennsylvania, the West and East branch of the Delaware rivers in NY, and if you do not mind the drive, the Farmington river in Connecticut. These rivers have two things in common: cold water and good hatches. So, if you are fishing at all, try these out.
Now down to Trout Unlimited topics. As of today, we are still planning to meet at the regular Fireman’s Field House meeting location in Oakhurst, NJ the first and third Tuesdays of the month. The chapter board meets the first Tuesday each month, while the general chapter meetings tske place on the third Tuesday. So in September, we will have meetings September 7th and 21st from 7pm to 9pm. We will be putting out the latest plans for the fall activities, including the speaker lineup. November has a tentative speaker, New Jersey’s own Tim Flagler, so do not miss this one. As of right now, we can all plan on wearing masks to the meetings and following social distancing guidelines since the Delta variant is still running amok. If you are not vaccinated, please get a vaccination.
Please be safe and tight lines.
