Changing of the Guard

The Champlain Valley chapter of Trout Unlimited is pleased to announce that Aaron Todd will succeed Ed Collins as President, effective with the April start of the organization's fiscal year.  Aaron has served as Vice President for the past year, bringing fresh ideas and new energy to the post-pandemic renewal of CVTU.  The chapter is grateful to Ed Collins for his leadership and guidance.  While stepping down from the Board of Directors, Ed will remain active in the chapter,  continuing to focus on Trout in the Classroom.  The Board is also happy to announce that Dave Barch succeeds Aaron as the chapter's Vice President.  Dave will continue his leadership in Community activities of CVTU.

New Chapter Boundaries - For the most part TU members aren’t too territorial. Recent changes in the makeup of the Vermont Trout Unlimited Council, though, have led to some modifications to the map of TU chapter coverage areas. We welcome to the family the "David and Francis Smith Northeast Kingdom Chapter of Vermont Trout Unlimited." With the revival of this TU chapter, areas served by adjacent chapters have been reassigned. If you’re a CVTU member residing in one of the few small areas affected, you probably won’t notice the change: chapter affiliations won’t be transferred. And regardless of where one’s chapter headquarters might be, Vermont waters welcome folks from every corner of the state and beyond!


The Champlain Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited extends thanks to the Water Wheel Foundation for a generous grant of $1700 in support of Trout in the Classroom. Announcing the grant, the Foundation noted, “We are honored to be able to offer this donation on behalf of the members of the band Phish and their generous community of fans.”
