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 - October 27, 2021
November has arrived, 2021 is almost over, and it's onward to 2022! There are lots of changes coming for the new year.
The TIC Egg delivery went off without a hitch. Thank you to the members and volunteers for helping out. We delivered eggs to 31 schools this year.
November 2, 2021 board meeting is cancelled for election day. Get out and VOTE. Your voice counts.
Our general meeting is Tues day, November 16, 2021. Fly tying is from 630pm to 730pm. Rich (Doc) is hosting. Speaker is Tim Flagger from Tightlines Productions. So come out an enjoy the evening.
We also are holding our elections for President and Vice President. We have two volunteers: Trooper Tom for President, and Steve for Vice President. If you would like to be part of the board please let me know.
Also we have Bob Simpson as our new Newsletter editor, so the newsletter will come out in your emails once again. Please keep an eye out and check your emails regularly.
All rivers in NJ have been stocked, so get out and fish. NY state rivers are open for trout fishing all year round but you have to catch and release. In PA, the Little Lehigh in Allentown is the place to go. Use eggs and sucker spawns. Again, it's catch and release only. One other thing, the lakes get stocked the week before Thanksgiving with large trout. So check fish and wildlife web page for updates. This a great time to take your children or grandchildren fishing. If you are venturing through the fields and woods remember hunting season is underway. Be safe and wear an orange hat.
Lastly, I would like say thank you for all of the support I have received over the years and wish everyone safe and happy holidays. I will miss you all and please be safe..
