BRMTU is the official local chapter in Blue Ridge, Georgia, of Trout Unlimited, the acclaimed national organization dedicated to cold-water fisheries.
BRMTU also plans the Blue Ridge Trout Festival and Outdoor Adventures in Blue Ridge, Georgia, celebrating the official "Trout Capital of Georgia." The annual event gathers fishermen, river sports enthusiasts, and allied outdoor recreation fans and their families or fun, education, food, entertainment and services while increasing the public's knowledge of trout and the conservation ethos associated with Trout Unlimited.
BRMTU is dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring the cold-water fisheries and watersheds of North Georgia, and to improving our community by empowering people of all abilities, including youth and veterans. We will achieve our mission through service and education, and through coalitions with like-minded organizations in the public, non-profit and commercial sectors.
All funds raised or donated to BRMTU are applied right here in the North Georgia mountains for cold-water conservation and stream restoration efforts, stream cleanups like Rivers Alive, and education and outreach. Sponsored education and outreach programs include Trout in the Classroom in local schools, the Trout Adventure Trail, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts conservation education, Project Healing Waters for wounded veterans, Casting for Recovery for breast cancer survivors, Georgia Trout Camp, and Mercier Orchard Family Fishing Days.
BRMTU meets the second Saturday of the month from 9 to 11 am, early enough to keep the stories short, but long enough to enjoy fun, fellowship fishing and a special program every month.
Meets at Faith Presbyterian Church, 56 Mountain Street, Blue Ridge, Georgia 30513, United States
