Justin Shroyer - Trophy Waters Guide Service

Join us as we welcome Justin Shroyer, owner of Trophy Waters Guide Service.  Justin graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Environmental Biology and Ecology, and has been guiding the region since 2003. He loves stalking massive tailwater brown trout, and never ignores a good top water smallmouth bite. Not afraid to think outside the box, or float the unfloatable, Justin varies his methods and locations to consistently put his customers on top notch fishing.

OMTU Story


Here is a video that was made by OMTU members back in 1999.  It tells about the mission of OMTU and some of the past projects that we have worked on as a chapter.  The narrator of the video, Paul Anderson, recently passed away so we decided to post this video in his honor.  The projects that we have worked on over the years may have changed, but the mission remains the same.
