About Us
George's River Trout Unlimited is the Mid Coast Maine Chapter of Trout Unlimited. TU's mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America's cold water fisheries and their watersheds.

The national organization has 140,000 volunteer members in  400 chapters across the country, in addition to a professional staff of 100 people at its national headquarters in Arlington, Virginia and in regional offices. 

Our  Chapter's members' major focus is the St. George's River which is our home river. In 2003 the Chapter was responsible for removing a dam on the river approximately 30 miles from the mouth of the river at the Gulf of Maine.  This precedent making project opened up an additional 17 miles of water to anadromous fish which come up the river to spawn. The Chapter continues to  monitor the river for favorable conditions for brook trout, brown trout, both fresh water and sea run fish, increased spawning of alewives and the hoped for runs of Atlantic Salmon.


The ongoing goals of the Chapter are to:

       
Undertake production of a St. George River Guide.

Develop an introduction to fly fishing for young people.
 
Continue our work with Project Healing Waters.
