                                      "AFTU Home Waters" Carmans River ~ Southaven County Park - Brookhaven, New York


"The Art Flick chapter of Trout Unlimited concerns itself with the protection of the coldwater fisheries of Suffolk County Long Island.  Our chapter was founded in 1983 as a chartered chapter of Trout Unlimited.  Our name was chosen in honor of Art Flick, one of the pioneering coldwater conservationists of New York state. 

The work of our chapter focuses on the protection and restoration of the coldwater streams of Eastern Long Island and its estuaries. These include: Carmans , Connetquot, Nissequogue, Swan, and Peconic Rivers, as well as the many lesser known spring creeks such as Beaverdam creek and Yaphank creek."  

For our work on restoring diadromous fish passage on the upper Carmans river, AFTU received the New York State South Shore Estuary Reserve's 2007 Group Stewardship Award.

Our efforts to protect Long Island's salmonid habitats continue and we welcome your help & support.  Join us, and help make a difference!





    It is with sadness to report the recent passing of AFTU member Joe Brescia on November 30th 2017. We will miss Joe’s smile & enthusiasm at Saturday morning fly tying sessions, and his laughter on the annual West Branch trip. Our condolences to his family & friends. For those wishing to add a few words of comfort an “obit tree page” has been set-up in his memory… >>>Joseph A. Brescia<<<
