We conserve cold water fisheries through outreach, restoration, and education.


The Northern Virginia Chapter of Trout Unlimited (NVATU) is a diverse group of men, women, and children, mostly from the Alexandria, Arlington County, Fairfax County, and Prince William County, who enjoy fishing and associated activities to enhance quality fishing opportunities. We are one of the largest Trout Unlimited (TU) chapters and often interact with other nearby TU chapters.

Our chapter holds regular meetings on the first Thursday of most months at the Vienna Firehouse, Vienna, Virginia. Chapter business, information and program for the evening start at 7:30 pm.
