The Coldwater River needs your help.
Under the leadership of Aaron Snell and Kristin Thomas we will be surveying the trout population of the Coldwater on the TU property (near Freeport) on September 21. The grant that paid for the first five years of this endeavor has run out but, because of the importance of determining the effects of radical drain cleaning, Jim Bedford suggested to Bryan and Kristin that MITU should consider continuing the population survey and they agreed. Jim asked Aaron to mark the beginning and end of the reach and he quickly volunteered to do more than that. We will need some volunteers to help. There will be two "runs", morning and afternoon, so if you only have time for one or the other that will be fine. We will be meeting at the Dolan parking lot on Baker Avenue at 9:00 on the 21st. Guessing the afternoon run will start around 1-2:00.
To volunteer or for further information or questions, please contact Jim at 517.484.5178 or

Ever wonder what we do? This is a copy of the presentation from a recent meeting describing the Chapters activities to conserve, protect and restore coldwater fisheries.

Be patient, it's a fairly large file - but it contains a tremendous amount of great information. Our thanks to Steven Arnoczky and the Perrin Board for putting this together.

The New Perrin Chapter Logo is here!
Many suggestions from the Board members and a great deal of work and patience from Steven Arnoczky!
The silhouette of a fisherman over a leaping brook trout commemorates Bob Perrin and his favorite species of trout. This logo has been transposed into vinyl bumper stickers and embroidered patches. You can help support your chapter with the purchase of either one of these. The decals will work well on every one of your vehicles and watercraft and the patches should be on your fishing vest and favorite shirts. Print an order form and send it with your check. (Don't forget - you can include an additional donation to help our conservation efforts!) Profits from these sales will be used to create and improve trout habitat in Michigan rivers and streams.
