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?

No easy fix for felt!

Felt is a superior wading sole, but it’s also a transmitter of aquatic invasives. Sadly, there’s no easy fix. It’s on anglers to clean their gear thoroughly. A very important read from TU National.
