Our mission is to conserve, protect and restore Maine’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds in Western Maine.

"Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world.

It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way.
 A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself

that are deeper than the ordinary self." —Ted Hughes

EVENTS & PROJECTS

February Chapter/Public Meeting

MTU will be presenting a program entitled FLY FISHING 101 at The First Congregational Church, 17 East Main Street, South Paris, Maine on Saturday, February 21st, from 12–3pm. Free to the public. Refreshments served. If you have ever had an interest in or curiosity about fly fishing, this program is a great introduction and primer for the novice to the expert. There will be four presentations:

 

1.) Understanding Fly Tackle by Dick Walthers, Master Maine Guide. Dick will discuss the equipment used for flyfishing; Fly Rod, Reel, Line, Leader, Fly.

 

2.) The Biology of Coldwater Fish/Natural Foods for Fish by John Wight, Master Maine Guide. To fly fish successfully you must understand the fish’s world of water and how they function in it, such as water temperature comfort zones.

 

3.) Fly-Fishing Tactics by Jim Mullen, Fly Tyer Extraordinaire.  Jim will discuss the two types of fly-fishing water: still water and moving water and how to approach your quarry.

 

4.) How to Fly Cast by Mike McCue, Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor. Mike will discuss and demonstrate conventional casting and fly casting techniques, as well as the Four Part Cast.

 

Hope to see you there. This should be fun and informative.

 

Veterans Casting Platform at Songo Locks, Naples

George Westerberg from Mollyockett Chapter of TU recognized a need to create a fishing opportunity for our enlisted and veteran military members. The permits necessary for this vision have been procured and a design created. We are very close to meeting our fundraising goal of $110,000.  Another $10,000 and we'll be there. Please help us reach this important milestone.

MAINE COUNCIL OF TROUT UNLIMITED

 

Our mission is to conserve, protect and restore Maine’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. We do this with five Maine chapters and about 1500 member-volunteers, through on-the-ground restoration projects, advocacy for the waters we love, and education. Maine is home to the nation’s last Atlantic salmon, the last native landlocked salmon and to more than 97% of the nation’s native and wild brook trout ponds.
