Rahway River Trout Unlimited is one of the newest New Jersey Trout Unlimited chapters. We are an organization of men and women that strive to protect our cold freshwater fisheries throughout the state. Our members meet once a month, discuss many topics from conservation to fishing. We also go on fishing trips throughout the year, conduct river cleanups, and partake in many other activities. If you like fishing or just want to give back to the environment then RRTU is for you.

Tom Gilmore
Flyfisher's Guide To Pennsylvania

Tom Gilmore, author and avid fly fisherman, will be presenting Pennsylvania’s Blue Ribbon Trout Streams. The presentation is based on his latest freshwater fly fishing book, Flyfisher’s Guide to Pennsylvania, that was recently released this winter.
Pennsylvania has more miles of trout streams than any state except for Alaska.  You will be guided by the author’s first-hand fishing knowledge and information from his detailed stream logs stretching back over four decades.  The author shares his experiences, anecdotes, detailed descriptions, and directions, as well as tips and tactics for success on Pennsylvania’s finest trout streams.  We will sample the world-class limestone spring creek of the Lehigh Valley and Central Pennsylvania, classic freestone streams of Potter and Clinton Counties and the mountain streams of the Poconos and Pennsylvania’s “Endless Mountains.”

Hope to see you there...

All are welcome!

The meetings are free and are open to all. All tying levels are welcome. We have extra materials and vices for those who need them and there are volunteers who will work with the new people who want to try fly tying. You don't have to be a TU member to join us. We have free coffee and donuts and always have a fly fishing DVD playing. This is a very informal get together with the purpose of sharing our hobby with other people who want to find out what it is all about in a laid back atmosphere. You will find it to be a very relaxing evening even if you don't want to tie flies. Come down and have a cup of coffee and meet a great bunch of guys, talk fishing or sports (no politics) or pick up some tying tips. This time of year is a great time to refill your fly boxes. Hope to see you there.

Women’s Initiative (WI) Program at New Jersey Trout Unlimited:
Be Part of it......
Trout Unlimited is America's leading coldwater conservation organization

Make a Difference.....
Be a grassroots advocate for protection of the environment

Leave a Legacy.....
Work to ensure we have clean, cold, fishable water for generations to come
   The main goal of the NJ State Council of Trout Unlimited Women’s Initiative is to provide support for chapters to recruit new members to TU as well as engage current members to network with other women and become involved in chapter projects and river outings.  As a grass roots effort campaign, the NJ State Council hopes to see an increase in women involvement and work to empower new leaders to share their passion for cold water conservation. Whether new to the sport or an experienced angler, the idea to unite women in the state and open communication will serve to enrich our membership. There are future plans to organize outings in Spring, which will give women in the state the opportunity to gather together for fishing and camaraderie.
