Trout Unlimited protects, reconnects and restores cold water fisheries in order to fulfill our mission. The Hemingway Chapter partners with individuals, businesses, non-profits and government agencies.


TU members can be involved in numerous projects to positively impact our local cold water fisheries. There is nothing quite as fulfilling as working on a meaningful project with others, knowing the we have helped make a difference. Projects and conservation opportunities vary in size, purpose and scope, from fish rescues to stream restoration. Many of these projects only involve only the time commitment of an afternoon or day. Come join us!
