A nice Deerfield rainbow from the recent trip!
On November 2, a group of of intrepid Monadnock TU Members and guests went to the Deerfield River for some late fall fishing. One group went with the Harrison Brothers Guide Service and another waded along the river. Over the next few weeks we'll feature photos from the trip. The trip was such a success that more are planned for next year! In this first photo, Ed Henault admires a nice brown caught by Larry Antonuk with the dam in the background
Bluegill Tournament Winner!
The proud winner, Jim Sullivan, of the Bluegill Bonaza Tournament is congratulated by Chapter President, Tim McMahon. While the turnout was small, those present enjoyed themselves. If we have another tournament, we would like to see more chapter members come out and enjoy some time on the water and support the chapter.

Trout in the Classroom
The Monadnock Chapter has supported the Trout in the Classroom program by providing chilers, getting the eggs and support for teachers. The hatched eggs will be released locally and the students will gain an appreciation of valuable resources. Clean water and habitat are crucial to the survival of the trout. Schools participating this year in our region are Jonathan Daniels, Keene, Surry Charter School, Harrisville Elementary and ConVal HS. The fish pictured above are in Dana Wood's classroom at ConVal HS. Thanks to all the teachers and students who have made this a success.
The Monadnock Chapter draws members from throughout SW New Hampshire. Our region covers areas in both of the region's major watersheds -- The Connecticut and Merrimack River drainages.
Monadnock Trout Unlimited meets at the Dublin Public Library on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm. These meetings are for both members and guests. You can check on the topic for a meeting by using the calendar on the left side of this page.
Join Trout Unlimited online (Select MONADNOCK 333 as your Chapter). Please note, if you live in Keene or Peterborough you will have to try to contact TU National. For some reason, the default for those two towns is the Merrimack Valley Chapter. We're working on correcting that.
