experience the excitement and traditions of fly fishing and conservation — and support a fund-raiser to help send a young person to TU Maine’s Trout Camp. Outdoor enthusiasts, families, young people, seniors, fly fishers, and the general public can attend this FREE event held by the Merrymeeting Bay Chapter of Trout Unlimited on the Brunswick Town Mall on Saturday, July 30, 2022, from 10:00 – 2:00. This event will offer free fly-casting instruction, fly tying demonstrations, aquatic insect exhibit, and live music from Highway 1.
As part of the fund-raising, Merrymeeting TU will hold auctions and raffles to support its year-round focus on fishing, conservation, and community: Trout Unlimited strives to foster and grow trout fishing culture in communities nationwide, while protecting the natural habitats and ecosystems surrounding them. The funds raised on July 30 will help support Merrymeeting Bay’s:
Annual Troup Camp, which teaches conservation ethics and practices, and fly-fishing to local youth
Winter fly-casting sessions at the Brunswick Rec Center
Fly-fishing workshop at Brunswick Junior High School
Local river and stream connectivity projects to support coldwater fisheries
