What is Trout Unlimited?

Trout Unlimited’s mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America’s trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds.

Today TU is a national organization with more than 140,000 volunteers organized into about 400 chapters from Maine to Montana to Alaska. This dedicated grassroots army is matched by a respected staff of lawyers, policy experts and scientists, who work out of more than 30 offices nationwide. These conservation professionals ensure that TU is at the forefront of fisheries restoration work at the local, state and national levels.

The Sebago Chapter of Trout Unlimited is the largest chapter in Maine and covers southern Maine from Yarmouth to the New Hampshire border. In 2014, the chapter was presented the Gold Trout Award by the national organization. This award is given to the chapter with the greatest success in conservation projects that protect and restore habitat in their area.


How to Join SebagoTU?

We'd love to have you as a member of SebagoTU, whether you fish or not. Besides contributing to the organization's national coldwater fisheries conservation efforts, you will receive four issues a year of TU's award winning Trout magazine, and Sebago Chapter mailings and information.

There's no better way to gain entrance into Maine's trout fishing community and the conservation community that works to preserve the habitat that it depends on. Contact our Membership Chair to see what kind of deals he's running this month. You can join or renew your membership online at https://www.tumembership.org/member

Along with the by-laws, the chapter adopted Chapter Policies - something recommended by TU National guidelines. Policies contain information and standard procedures that do not belong in the by-laws. The Chapter Policies were updated in 2015 to be consistent with the by-law change.
