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.
Regular Monthly Meeting - 2/21/2017
Our February regular monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at 7:30 pm at our usual Fireman's Field meeting location in Oakhurst, NJ. We have a guest speaker whose presentation topics will include recent clean ups on the Lower South Branch of the Raritan river as well as clean ups on the North Branch and Lamington rivers. Also information on fishing these areas and what fish you may expect to catch. Also fish ladder information from the Island Farm Fish Weir in South Bound Brook and PIT tagging of American Shad and River Herring on the Raritan river. Access points for fishing locally and letters written to F&G asking to extend trout stocking through Manville and a request for fall trout stocking on the main stem of the Raritan river. As usual, Fly tying precedes the meeting at 6:30 pm.
Annual Beaverkill Trip - May 19-21, 2017
The chapter's annual trip to the beautiful Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and Delaware rivers in the Catskills region will be held May 18-21, 2017. People usually arrive several days prior to get some fishing in before the weekend crowds arrive. Now is the time you should make your hotel reservation as rooms fill up over the winter. A few hotels are Riverside Cafe and Hotel in Horton 6074985305. It is right on the Beaverkill and you can walk off their property and fish the Sunoco pool. It has a very good restaurant but the rooms last time I stayed there were dingy. Smiths Colonial in Hancock 6076372989. Immaculately clean older motel but you are a 20 minute drive to Roscoe. Roscoe Motel 6074985220. It has good reviews from chapter members who have stayed there. Also there is Butternut Grove campsite 6074984224 and a place on the East Branch called Beaver Del 6073637443 which has campsites, RV hookups and rooms as well as restaurant but I don't know anyone who has stayed there. We will do a text thread again this year to stay in touch by cell phone. We could also do a fishing contest if there is interest. Let us know! Contact Kevin Lovely or Rich Fernandez for more details.
