The Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited

Rabun TU In Action

In addition to its educational work and its hands-on efforts to conserve, protect, and restore Northeast Georgia’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds, the Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited has participated in a range of public processes related to policy and management of publicly owned and protected natural resources.

Below are press releases and position statements the Chapter has issued as it has sought to influence public processes and perceptions concerning the management and welfare of our region’s freshwater resources.

Apr 6: Rabunite 101!

Ever wanted to try your hand at fly-fishing for trout but never learned the in’s and out’s of it? 

Ever wonder why some people seem to get so “hooked” on it?

Now’s your chance! The Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited is planning a half-day fly-fishing seminar for adults. More info here. 

 

Wildcat Creek Road Closed

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stockings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter. Details here.

Rod Raffle!

Once again, Mack Martin of the Atlanta Fly Fishing School has graciously donated a custom-built fly rod and reel to the Rabun Chapter to be used for fund raising.
