Just wanted to recognize Bill and Danny for their support of our Special Love Camp last weekend. I know we had our own Clean up day and picnic, but Bill shared that he, Danny and the volunteer from Northern Shen weren’t enough, they were very challenged in keeping up with the number of folks at the camp…If you can donate some of your time for the next event, please let us know via our web site…Thanks again Bill & Danny!!
Hey Chris – a big thanks Man for heading up/leading the clean-up day and picnic – I got raving reviews from members who attended…what organization – -glad to hear we had fun – I’m looking for pictures…

TU and others recently worked with the operators of Mount Vernon Farm to demolish a derelict dam across the river which impeded fish passage and interrupted the stream\’s natural hydrology. This project will stabilize and enhance the area where the dam was removed and improve conditions for brook trout and other species.

Hey Folks,…next FWF event is on Wednesday, May 5th on the Rapidan River, hosted by Marcia Woolman – come join us -Meet at Junction pool at 10am. Bring dry flies, nymphs, water & snacks.
Just letting you know that we’ve mustered 4 volunteers from the Chapter to act as stream monitors for this special event again this year, unfortunately, we weren’t able to sponsor a Chapter Team due to our financial situation. We’ll provide an update after the event.
The VA Trout Stream Sensitivity Study (VTSSS), lead by UVA scientists, is one of the most useful and fun things we do in TU. The purpose of the study is to track the level of pH in our streams. Low pH is caused by acid deposition from rain & snow into our mountain trout streams and their watersheds. TU volunteers will take to the mountains, locate their assigned stream, and the exact spot where the water sample was taken 10 years ago. Read more »
