Northern Shenandoah Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited (NSVTU) is part of Trout Unlimited, a national organization dedicated to the preservation of cold water fisheries and watersheds.
Located in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, our area has some of the Mid-Atlantic State's premier Trout fisheries. These include Trout streams in the northern part of the Shenandoah National Park and the George Washington National Forest. Local Trout streams feed the Shenandoah River system - a premier warm water fishery - that flows through the heart of NSVTU's area.
Most NSVTU meetings are held in Front Royal on the second Thursday of each month, year 'round. Because our Chapter area includes Warren, Shenandoah, Page, and part of Rappahannock County, we rotate many of our meetings among other local towns. For specific information on upcoming meetings, go to our meetings page. You can also call our President, Eric Shockey for the latest information concerning our chapter.

HAVE YOU CAUGHT THIS FISH??
Missing Fin ?? Call it in!!
Report any Rainbow Trout with a MISSING adipose fin to the VDGIF Verona Office. Include: location of catch, size, and date.
BACKGROUND: In 2009 VDGIF started stocking steelhead Rainbow Trout in Lake Moomaw, Back Creek, Jackson River, Muddy Run, and Cowardin Run The purpose of stocking this strain of Rainbow Trout was to increase the Rainbow Trout population in Lake Moomaw and develop seasonal migratory "runs" of Steelhead upstream from the lake. Adipose fins were removed from all of the Steelhead so VDGIF and anglers like you can document survival, grouth, and movement of these fish. Currently there are no special regulations for Steelhead and it is legal to harvest these fish (following listed/posted regulations for Rainbow Trout). However, we recommend releasing these fish to help grow the Steelhead population.
