Smith River Trout Unlimited will meet at Rania’s Restaurant in uptown Martinsville, on Thursday, June 2, 2011, at 6:30 pm. Steve Hiner, aquatic entomologist from VA Tech, aka “The Bug Man” will give a presentation on aquatic insect life of the Smith River with an emphasis on Mayflies, Sulfurs and Blue Wing Olives. Steve challenges everyone to bring him a sample of a recent find from the river so that he can show you how to use CSI techniques to reach a positive ID.
In addition to “Bugs” we will discuss the following:
- Plans for our annual river clean up and cookout scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2011
- Plans for SRTU a booth at the Smith River Fest, Friday and Saturday, Aug 12 -13, 2011
- Any other business which would be of interest to the membership
You do not have to be a member of TU to attend our meetings.(You must be a member in order to vote on chapter business). Anyone who has an interest in the Smith River Fishery is encouraged to attend.
Rania’s provides us with a meeting space with the expectation that the majority of attendees will purchase a meal. (Good food, moderate prices). Address is 147 E. Main St., Martinsville, VA 24112. It is in the historic district of Martinsville known as uptown as it sits on a hill.
