Mission
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.
