Youth

Getting Their Feet Wet

The Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited takes very seriously its charge of cultivating future generations of conservation leaders. Throughout the year it sponsors a number of activities and programs that give kids the opportunity to “get their feet wet” with the exciting experience of stepping into a stream, casting a fly, and hooking a trout. And through those experiences, the Chapter also teaches and inspires today’s youth to become tomorrow’s caretakers of our coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.

Programs and activities

Meet our pet trout. They love trout chow and are always hungry! Will you feed them, please?

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.
