The Pisgah Chapter
The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Brevard, NC, and serves Henderson, Transylvania and Polk Counties. Chartered in 1969, the Chapter has dedicated more than 45 years to cold water conservation. From our humble beginnings of 29 members we have grown to nearly 400.
The Pisgah Chapter was the 34th chapter chartered by Trout Unlimited and the 3rd in North Carolina. That’s quite a legacy when you consider that Trout Unlimited is a national organization with about 300,000 members and supporters organized into over 400 chapters and councils from Maine to Montana to Alaska.
Regular chapter meetings are held the second Thursday of each month except July, August and December at the DFR Room, downstairs from Jaime’s restaurant in downtown Brevard. Servers from Jaime’s are on hand to take and deliver pizza orders for handmade pizza, so come with an appetite!
Members and guests are encouraged to arrive early to meet and catch up with other chapter members, perhaps over an adult beverage if you’re so inclined. Membership is not required to attend Pisgah TU meetings, and visitors are always welcome.
Thanks to many years of good stewardship and the continued generosity of generations of members, Pisgah TU enjoys a firm financial footing and as a result is able to commit to effective partnerships with other conservation organizations, and to longitudinal programs that require significant financial commitment over time, like the Davidson River Study.
We invite you to join us when you can. The first thing we do is welcome newcomers, but come early and introduce yourself around. You’re sure to make an friend or two and you’ll experience a warm western North Carolina welcome.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Pisgah TU meets the second Thursday of every month except December, July and August at the DFR room, located downstairs from Jaime’s at 36 East Main Street in Brevard.
