Trout In The Classroom featured on WCAX!

Our own Joe Mark, dedicated Board Member and Vermont’s TIC Coordinator, took to the snowy roads this past January to personally deliver trout eggs to all the TIC classrooms in our region (and a bit beyond).

He was 1 volunteer. 9.5 hours. 221.8 miles. 5 schools. 1 slice of pizza. 1 thermos of coffee. 1 liter of water. 900 eggs!!

Way to go Joe! SWVT TU and all participating TIC classrooms across Vermont thank you for all your hard work and dedication to this program.

    Hello Fellow TUs,
    My name is Tim Johnson, live in Northern Virginia, and a member of the 1,900 strong Northern Virginia Trout Unlimited (NVATU) chapter. I have a vacation home in Peru, VT and am planning a fishing trip (5 – 6 days) sometime in August, 2016, with 5 NVATU members, including our president (Jay Lovering). We’d love to meet up with some SWVT members to show us around to the great spots to fish and to get together afterwards too talk about our day on the water.

    I’d love to hear from you at or 571/419-1654 in Virginia or 802/824-6549 when in Vermont.

    Tim Johnson
