The Virginia Council of Trout Unlimited is made up of representatives of the state’s 12 chapters. Its role is to coordinate the work of chapters in the areas of conservation, education, and advocacy. The Council provides grants and practical expertise to chapters so they may accomplish their objectives. The Council also works with state and federal agencies and other conservation organizations to enhance the quality of coldwater resources and related fisheries.

When you become a member of Trout Unlimited, TU will assign you to a local chapter. Chapters meet regularly to meet friends, discuss conservation issues, plan work days on their home waters, organize fundraisers, and of course, swap a few fish tales and learn how to tie the latest fly patterns. Looking for a fishing partner? Many chapters sponsor "Fish with a Friend" programs that connect members in search of fishing companions.​
