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.

RRTU Homewaters Cleanup on The Rahway River 4/27/13

     Thank you to those Rahway River Trout Unlimited Chapter members who sacrificed their Saturday morning in supporting this local conservation project & keeping this part of the Rahway River clean of debris. 
     Swarms of local organizations, schools & families assisted in this past Saturday's cleanup depositing tons of trash alongside Kenilworth Blvd. for the township to haul-away. Even RRTU's newest member Melodie joined in on filling many bags of streamside trash. Returning member Greg from Colorado & our newly appointed Membership Chairperson Chuck lugged huge culvert pipes out. Chris & Dave retrieved & hauled many discarded tires out from their muddy homes, while Tom and Christopher assisted in scouring the area for carelessly discarded items. Please consider joining us next year for this worthy event, Happy Earth Month!      www.rr-tu.org

They will have crews that meet in San Bar Park/Alumni Field in Hackettstown, Hampton Borough Park, and on the lower river typically at the old Hughesville paper mill near the river at Cyphers Road. Wear waders and old clothes and bring some gloves. Garbage bags will be provided. The MWA serves lunch at Hampton Borough Park for those attending at that location.
