Feet and Fingerlings

Our trout in the classroom fingerlings get one last look at their caretakers from the past few months as they acclimate to their new home. 

SRTU Meeting

Smith River Trout Unlimited will meet at Rania’s Restaurant in uptown Martinsville, on Thursday, June 2, 2011, at 6:30 pm.  Steve Hiner, aquatic entomologist from VA Tech, aka “The Bug Man” will give a presentation on aquatic insect life of the Smith River with an emphasis on Mayflies, Sulfurs and Blue Wing Olives. Steve challenges everyone to bring him a sample of a recent find from the river so that he can show you how to use CSI techniques to reach a positive ID.

In addition to “Bugs”  we will discuss the following:

  • Plans for our annual river clean up and cookout scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2011
  • Plans for SRTU a booth at the Smith River Fest,  Friday and Saturday, Aug 12 -13, 2011
  • Any other business which would be of interest to the membership

You do not have to be a member of TU to attend our meetings.(You must be a member in order to vote on chapter business).   Anyone who has an interest in the Smith River Fishery is encouraged to attend.

Rania’s provides us with a meeting space with the expectation that the majority of attendees will purchase a meal. (Good food, moderate prices).  Address is 147 E. Main St., Martinsville, VA  24112. It is in the historic district of Martinsville known as uptown as it sits on a hill.
