WELCOME TO EJTU!
East Jersey Trout Unlimited (EJTU) is a community of more than 700 anglers in the greater northeastern New Jersey region who are dedicated to cold water conservation and the stewardship of our local watersheds. Our members work to protect, reconnect, restore and sustain trout habitat for anglers today and for the next generations of sportsmen and women who value the relationship between clean, healthy waterways and sustainable fishing.
As a grass-roots organization, EJTU is primarily engaged in a number of conservation initiatives and restoration projects on our local rivers. But our chapter is also involved in educational outreach and regular coordination with state and local authorities, as well as many other regional environmental organizations to assist in a wide range of conservation efforts.
Join us today! In addition to a commitment to conservation, our members also benefit from the company and friendship of like-minded anglers. Our chapter holds monthly meetings and hosts regular fishing trips and gatherings where novice and accomplished anglers alike come together to share their knowledge and learn best practices for fishing cold, clean and sustainable waters.
Please help us conserve, protect and restore Eastern New Jersey's coldwater fisheries and their watersheds by donating to East Jersey Trout Unlimited.
