Welcome to Merrymeeting Bay TU Chapter 329 of Trout Unlimited (MMBTU). Our mission is to conserve, protect, and restore cold water resources and the watersheds on which they depend in Maine.

Fall and Winter Meetings Update

Welcome to the New Normal!  How many times have you heard that over these past several months?  Who knew that our lives could so quickly and utterly change almost overnight and last for many months?
The leaders of Merrymeeting Bay TU have been putting our heads together over the past several months devising ways to keep our membership engaged in an enjoyable and safe manner.  We sent out a membership survey to see how you felt about how we should proceed to accomplish the ends.  The survey results can be seen below.
Our Fall speaker line-up will be held over Zoom.  We are offering an engaging line-up starting with 2018 Izaak Walton Award winning Adirondack fishing guide; Rachel Finn and the renown angling historian and tyer, Leslie Hilyard, and we just booked the author of When You Find my Body, and avid badass angler; Denis Dauphinee.  2021 brings guide and photographer, Todd Towle to the Zoom platform.  Mike Green is on the docket for February talking about fishing the Upper Green River in Wyoming. The March meeting will feature the Down East Salmon Federation’s executive director, Dwayne Shaw speaking about the Parr Project.   Zoom details will arrive in your email inbox.  We will continue to contact you via post and of course, you are always welcome to view and post on our Facebook page.   Please share with us your thoughts by contacting any one of the board members listed on the About tab.
Thank you for your continuing interest in Trout Unlimited’s mission and of course, our chapter.
Tight lines,
Jeff Bush
MMBTU President

and the survey says…..

To summarize the results:

The chapter is most comfortable with zoom meetings for the upcoming Fall/Winter season at the 7:PM time slot on the third Wednesday of each month for chapter meetings. When selecting guest speakers the chapter is most interested in the topics of travel destinations and fishing advice.  In order to best keep in touch, the members said that email is best, but snail mail was not far behind as a source for information. The good news for the webmaster is that you like to get info from the webpage which has had a facelift and new information added.  Hopefully, you will begin to use it as a resource for information and as a way to stay on the pulse of happening conservation efforts as well as fun TU events.
