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.
If you are a new member, please visit our New Member Page to learn more about our chapter.

EJTU’s By-Laws include term limits for various Board of Directors positions. Therefore, at the January 2018 monthly meeting, those attending the meeting will vote for members to be elected to EJTU’s new Board of Directors. If you would like to join the board, please call Doug Penna, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, 201-288-4409 and tell him of your interest.
Please mark your calendars for the NJF&W fall stocking on Friday October 13th. We will meet at Glen Gray Bridge in Mahwah at about 9:00 AM to set up equipment, drink coffee and swap stories. We expect the State to stock the entire river which means we need a few volunteers at West Oakland Avenue and others to move up to the Park, Halifax Road, and Riverview Terrace. Many hands make for light work. Water levels may not be high enough to float stock so we will need extra help to cover sections of the river usually accessed by boat. Please contact Rich Malizia if you are available to help at email@example.com
Our next monthly Chapter Meeting is November 8, 2017 at 7:30. Dickson Despommier will be our guest speaker. Dick will give us a presentation about his new website / project "The Living River". You can check out the website here at The Living River.
