Trout Unlimited Minnesota

Our Publication

Trout Unlimited Minnesota is the official publication of Minnesota Trout Unlimited and there are three issues distributed to MNTU members each year. The content includes conservation issues, habitat improvement project highlights, fishing techniques, destination articles, fly tying tutorials and more. This is also where you can find what the various chapters across the state have been up to and what chapter and state events are coming up.

 

We are always looking for new writers, photos and content. If you have an idea for an article you would like to write or would like to see written for the next newsletter, send an email to the newsletter editor, Carl Haensel mntueditor@gmail.com.

 

Want this newsletter in your mailbox and not a member of MNTU? Members from other states or those who want to directly support this newsletter can now purchase a one or three year subscription.
