About Our Chapter
The Long Island Chapter of Trout Unlimited is a group of men and women whose focus is to restore and conserve Long Island's coldwater fisheries. Our 400+ members are mostly from the Nassau & Suffolk County regions of New York. Our chapter holds regular meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month except July & August. We focus on important conservation issues at these meetings, and also leave some time aside at the end of our meeting to have an entertaining guest speaker. We also hold our Annual Banquet in April.
We get involved in Trout in the Classroom, DEC Camps for youths, stream cleanups, resource management, fundraising campaigns, adopt a service person, and other activities which ensure healthy watersheds for our children and their children. Please visit our website periodically as we will provide continous updates about our different initiatives, offer exciting raffles, and inform you about important events.
Monthly meetings are held the third tuesday of every month at the VFW in Hicksville at 7:30pm.
Keep up to date by adding the calendar to your phone or computer here.

Annual Banquet - 2016
The Long Island Chapter of Trout Unlimited extends its sincerest gratitude to all the individuals and businesses who generously supported the 2016 Conservation Banquet. It was an tremendous success, because of your donations.
Each month of the year except July and August we release recent news, contributed stories, tips on fishing, videos of our latest meetings, and photos of recent fishing trips and cleanups.
Fall Outing - Delaware River
The Chapter has planned it’s fall outing to the Catskills, for the weekend of October 8th through October 10, 2016. We will be staying at Smith’s Colonial Motel in Hancock NY. Located on the Delaware River. This venue provides us with many angling opportunities on some of the most picturesque streams in the Catskills; truly “Blue Ribbon’ water as Jeff would say.
The total cost for this 2016 Fall Outing is $95.00 per person, based on double occupancy and includes all taxes.
