Mountain Bridge Chapter of Trout Unlimited
The MISSION of the Mountain Bridge Chapter of Trout Unlimited (MBTU) parallels the Trout Unlimited mission but is focused on upstate South Carolina, specifically: "To conserve, protect, and restore South Carolina’s trout fisheries and their watersheds (and on a selective basis, those of western North Carolina) through chapter and member activities, advocacies and common goals."
In addition, our VISION reflects our mission, which is: "To ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish continue to thrive within their original South Carolina range, so that our descendants can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters." All our efforts and activities are ultimately directed toward our belief in these tenets. We raise awareness for and execute projects to conserve local waters:
• We work to preserve our local waters including the Chattooga, Chauga, and Saluda Rivers; Matthews Creek, Howard’s Creek, precious Upstate places.
• Youth Education: Trout-in-the-Classroom at 12 local schools
• Brook Trout habitat restoration
• Stream restoration and clean up
• Dam removal and culvert replacement
• Water temperature monitoring
