Welcome to the website of Trout Unlimited’s Chattooga River Chapter. We are the chapter with weekly activities to interest conservationists, coldwater anglers, and all of you who appreciate opportunities that contribute to the health of our environment.
Chapter opportunities include monthly meetings featuring knowledgeable speakers on varieties of subjects relating to coldwater conservation. Weekly hikes present every member an invitation to see and appreciate the diversity of Oconee and Pickens Counties. Our “Streams-of-the-Season” are mentoring sessions which allow participants to attend as overnight campers or on a day-trip basis.
We maintain the Coon Branch Trail along the primitive Whitewater River between the falls. We collect the litter along our adopted stretch of Highway 107 in Oconee County.
“Trout in the Classroom” is an activity we sponsor in local schools. “Scouting-for-Trout” is an on-stream activity for youth.
Refer to our “CORE AGENDA,” linked in the menu to the left, for a complete list of activities.
And, by the way, we enjoy fishing for trout.
Experience with us, “Catch and Release!”
