Who We Are.

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, host fly tying events, and partake in many other activities. If you like fishing or just want to give back to the environment then RRTU is for you. So tell a friend, come on out and enjoy yourself, learn a few new things, meet some new fishing buddies, and perhaps even consider joining our Trout Unlimited Chapter - #155. We meet at the Cranford Community Center for our General meetings and Fly tying nights.

Coldwater Conservation School

Please consider a deserving child and pass this information on.  This is a great way to build our future New Jersey conservationists.
The Coldwater Conservation School is a collaborative effort between the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife and the NJ State Council of Trout Unlimited, along with its supporting chapters. The school allows students to spend four days in the heart of trout country and explore coldwater habitats through conservation-related activities.
The goal of the school is to foster a knowledge and appreciation of coldwater habitats using a variety of hands-on activities and interactive learning methods that teach the benefit of coldwater habitats. The Coldwater Conservation School will give students the hands-on experience and knowledge about how to care for the coldwater habitat that trout and other wildlife need for survival.
The School will be held for its fourth year at the NJ School of Conservation in Stokes State Forest, June 27-June 30, 2013. The cost will be $275.00 per student and includes food, lodging and equipment.
Students must be 11 - 14 years old in order to participate.

Jessica is still in need of volunteers for critical activities at this weekends open house at the Pequest Fish Hatchery. Volunteers can let Jessica know by emailing her the following:

1. Their name
2. The day (s) they can help
3. Where they plan on helping in the pond or the kiddie tank
4. The hours they plan on helping for each day.
