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.
Raritan Inn Fly Fishing Trip - May 9, 2016
If you have wanted a chance to catch larger trout than the state stockies, this is your chance. There are fish in these waters in excess of 24 inches and they are a strain known for their acrobatics. This is fly fishing only. We rent the property for the day and therefore have to charge a fee. The cost will be $50 an angler and will include a light lunch (hot dogs). We will limit this to the first 12 anglers to sign up. This is less than a round of golf and you can fish all day. Contact Kevin Lovely to reserve your spot, and either bring your check made out to JSTU to the monthly meeting or mail to JSTU PO box 781 Oakhurst NJ 07755. Last years trip was a great success and attendees had a ball.
Regular Monthly Meeting - 5/17/2016
Join us for our May meeting on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, 7:30pm, back at our usual Fireman's Field meeting location in Oakhurst, NJ since the facility renovations have been completed. The casting instructor from L&H Woods will be there to give fly casting instruction, so bring a rod and get some good pointers on improving your casting. As usual, fly tying will take place before the meeting starting at 6:00pm. See you there!
Annual Beaverkill Trip - June 3-5, 2016
The chapter's annual trip to the beautiful Beaverkill and Willowemoc rivers in the Catskills will be held June 3-5. People usually arrive several days prior to get some fishing in before the weekend crowds arrive. As usual, you can camp at the Butter Nut Grove campground on the banks of the Beaverkill. Contact Kevin Lovely for more details.
