Our 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, click on the Meetings / Activities tab for dates and times.

Next Event - Bamboo, Brats and Business

Monday May 12, 2014

Doors Open at 5:30 pm

The May meeting is our annual "Bamboo & Brats" picnic.  Free food - the usual menu of Brats, Bourbon Beans, Hayloft Cole Slaw and a fancy dessert.  Please bring your own liquid refreshments!  Also, this is our annual business meeting - time to quickly cover the year in review, handle a few business items and most importantly, entertain nominations and vote on the new Board of Directors.  Several board seats are opening and we need your help - please step up and nominate a worthy and willing candidate or offer your own services for a year or so to keep Ann Arbor Trout Unlimited on the move forward!

The Painted Trout is located at 12075 Island Lake Rd. Dexter, MI. Please bring your own liquid refreshmentsWe supply the food, but drinks are up to you! Also, there is lots of room for casting so bring along your favorite rod, maybe a new Christmas pole, something graphite, glass or Bamboo.  There are sure to be a few "experts" on the grounds to tune your stroke.  If you have some folding chairs handy, toss those in the car too!  See you at the Painted Trout!


February 2014 Member Meeting ReCap

Another great Member Presentation "Home Movie" night.  A nice full house enjoyed three swell trip reports and as always good food, good drink and goods friends!

Dave kicks things off with his Alaskan Adventure full of Fish Porn - the crowds begins to get excited!
Next up is Al and Tim reliving their trip to the Three Rivers Lodge in Labrador. You can barely make out the four legged flight into the wilds of Labrador to get to their destination.  More Fish Porn and the crowd gets a little more excited!
Last up is Len with a comprehensive look at the Patagonia region of Chile.  Luxury accomodations, 5 star meals and MORE FISH PORN!  The crowd grows restless!
See, I told you they were excited!

But wait - in a dimly lit corner of the room there's even time for a little Pre-Valentines Day romance - I guess the evening was a hit!

You better not miss next month's meeting - who knows what might happen!
