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.
Be Careful - Don't Be A Turkey!
Just in case you were not aware, Turkey Hunting (0ctober 24-31) and other Hunting seasons are going on throughout NJ. Please check the NJ wildlife web page for all of the locations that turkeys are being hunted this year. It includes the KLG MWA, Pequest MWA, Musky MWA. So, if you are going near your favorite trout stream and they are in these areas, please wear an orange hat. You do not want to mistaken for a Turkey…
Also please wear a mask and social distance whenever you go out.

Message from the Chapter President:
During the last month, JSTU Board of Directors has participated in the yearly Trout in the classroom egg delivery to approximately 19 schools. I would like to thank the volunteers Rich F, Trooper Tom, George Hunt, Mike S and Stanley for delivering the eggs to the schools. Also Trooper Tom competed in the yearly contest for Fly Fisherman of the year and actually finished 5th out of 10 chapters. He hooked and landed one trout.
Due to Covid 19 we cannot meet at this time. But if you need to talk or swap fish stories, I am available most nights and would like to hear from you. You can contact me here.
Unfortunately, Covid 19 has once again spiked, and the fly show in Edison has been cancelled. Also, I would like to wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving. And please everyone, wear a mask and be safe.
