Trout Unlimited is a national organization dedicated to protecting and improving cold water fishing resources. Our local chapter is a key building block and our local members volunteer their time, money and energy to improving cold-water fishing resources in New Hampshire. Almost all members love fly fishing, and related activities, such as fly tying.

Friday, June 10 – Optional Free Day of Hosted Fishing
Spend a great day on the water chasing eager trout in mountain streams or on larger rivers. Located with access to some optimal water no matter which direction you head, you’ll enjoy a day filled with fun thanks to your fishing hosts, local New Hampshire TU members and volunteers who share your passion for conservation and fishing and can’t wait to show you their favorite streams! You are also free to arrange a private guide trip on your own for the day.


Friday Night, June 10 –
Dinner is no-host and many anglers choose to fish until dark and grab a bite with their volunteer host out on the road. We will provide you with a range of local options within easy driving distance of the hotel for that evening.


Saturday, June 11 – Workshops and Seminars
Saturday’s full-day of workshops, panels and discussions are designed to bring together the best ideas and focus on the greatest challenges and opportunities for coldwater conservation in the Northeast Region. Whether sharing strategies on running a chapter stream restoration project, advocating for land protection or regulation changes, or learning skills to engage more youth and families in conservation and fishing, you’re sure to walk away armed with tips, tools and resources to make a difference on your local rivers. Above all else, the networking with fellow TU members and volunteers opens the door to incredible idea sharing and opportunities for partnership across county and state lines!


Saturday Night, June 11
Enjoy a special barbecue on the grounds of the Mount Sunapee Resort with a great outdoor atmosphere, cash bar and some fun casting competitions to keep the night lively! Often the best part of the meeting weekend, the Saturday evening meal offers ample time for networking and following up with fellow TU volunteers on discussions from earlier in the day.


Sunday, June 12 – Workshops and Seminars
Sunday’s half-day session continues the great discussions and presentations with a focus on more topics important to your council or chapter. We will end a little around mid-day with a quick wrap session so you can hit the road home early – or stay a few hours for some more fishing!
