Pisgah TU programs are coordinated and peopled by many dedicated, hard-working volunteers. No matter what your level of physical abilities or interests, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in our efforts to protect, restore and conserve coldwater fisheries here in western North Carolina.
Our all-volunteer officers and board put in many hours behind-the-scenes making sure our chapter remains on the forefront of conservation efforts and service to our members, and work hard to be good stewards of our members’ trust.
Check out our Programs page for more information on specific opportunities and to volunteer.
The Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited
The Pisgah Chapter
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 Guidon Brewing, 415 8th Avenue East, just north of downtown Hendersonville, Everyone is invited to come by for great fellowship and Dry Falls has an excellent beer selection and delicious food truck. During July, August, and December, we will be meet socially at Dry Falls Brewing with no chapter business planned.
Our meetings feature interesting guest presenters, updates on national, state, and local issues, and upcoming volunteer opportunities. Membership is not required to join Pisgah TU meetings and everyone is 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 Habitat Enhancement Project.
