Location: Auburn Sportsman’s Club
             50 Elm St, Auburn, MA 01501


Hello CMTU,


The April Chapter meeting was a lot of fun. We had some special Bourbon/Scotch/Jameson/Lemon Aide glasses custom made for our chapter. This Amazon resource, you can get about anything. These Glasses came with "Central MA Chapter of Trout Unlimited" on the front of the Glass. But that was where the fun began. We used a Cricut machine to make an outline of a Trout - Top down view. We attached the template to the bottom of the glass and then painted with a special Glass paint in black. Each glass needed to be baked for an hour - and then good for use and washing (Best by hand).


Looking for feedback for a possible repeat next year!


At this month's meeting, we will discuss 2 possible fishing trips for our chapter.


The first - MA Council - Caddis Weekend the weekend of June 3 & 4. We will need to make reservations, but this is a fun event and the caddis hatch is very good on the Deerfield. Take a look at your calendar and send me an email if you are interested. The board will discuss paying for the event - since we're still in Covid recovery.


The second - Camping on the Farmington. The Campground weekends are booked solid, but there are several options for Sunday thru Thursday. Thinking about the later part of June and should have the Sulphur Hatch still strong. This would probably be tent sites. I have a 6 person. We could have 2 tents for 6. If more than 6, we can get another site.


May is the last meeting until we start up again in September. We will be looking to ramp-up our activities in the Fall and plan on discussion on Banquet, High School Fishing Tournaments, etc. Looking for your ideas and inputs to improve out chapter.


The Dam removal will be a big part of our efforts going forward. We anticipate activity with other interested groups ramping up going forward. We will keep all informed and look forward progress that we will support with communication.


Get out there and get your flies on the water. The Hendrickson Hatch is NOW. Go have some fun and send us your stories.


Tight Lines,

Peter Sterndale

President, Central MA Chapter of Trout Unlimited
