To conserve, protect and restore Michigan's cold water fisheries and their watersheds, including our own Huron River!
The Ann Arbor Chapter of Trout Unlimited welcomes you to view our Website and newsletter, The Reel News. We are a friendly and active chapter. We fish together and work together. We organize several fishing trips each year as well as working trips where we practice “hands on” river habitat restoration. We also host monthly informative meetings each year, from September to May.  Click on the Meeting tab for our newest schedule.
Tight Lines,
Mike Mouradian
AATU Past  President
We will be holding our meetings at Weber’s Ann Arbor Hotel, 3050 Jackson Road, Ann Arbor.  We will be using their Ann Arbor Room, which is located straight back from the hostess station at their restaurant entrance.  We will be able to order food and beverages directly from their menu, so members are encouraged to arrive anytime after 5:30 to have something to eat and to visit and network with other members prior to the actual meeting, which will start at 7:00. Hope to see you there!
Tight Lines,
John Zolan
AATU President

When you join Trout Unlimted, you are then assigned to a specific chapter to attend meetings at or to volunteer your talents with. Sometimes, the chapter's meeting location that you are assigned to is much further away than a neighboring chapter.  Can you switch chapters?  The answer is "yes". 
An active TU member may change his/her chapter affiliation by: E-mailing: TUmembership@tu.org .  In your e-mail, include your name and address, and say that you wish to be assigned to Chapter 127 – Ann Arbor. 
Or, you can change it by calling: 1-800-834-2419 and making the same request.
