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.
Coming Soon - JSTU's State-Wide Raffle!
The Jersey Shore Chapter of TU will be conducting a state-wide raffle in the coming months to raise funds in support of our important conservation work. Tickets should be available soon, and all TU members in the state will receive a mailing. The first prize will be a $1000 Cabela's gift certificate, while second prize will be a $500 gift certificate to Shannon's Fly Shop in Calaphon, NJ near the South Branch of the Raritan River. The drawing is planned for April 21, 2015. Stay tuned for more information!

Fly Fishing Show - January 23-25
The annual Somerset Fly Fishing Show will be held January 23-25. JSTU will again have a booth (see Volunteer Oportunities for information on how you can help), and will be selling tickets for our chapter raffle. This is always a fun event, and a good time to meet up with old friends, meet new ones, and find out newest fly fishing gear. It's also a great time to meet some of the members of the other TU chapters in NJ.
