Meet MTA

Non-Profit Organization 

MTA is composed of thousands of members throughout the state of Michigan.  We all have one thing in common: Passion for the Trout!
Beneath the surface, however, the heart of Michigan Trout Addicts lives with the desire to leave a lasting positive impact on all of those we encounter.  We seek areas of need and work to help those who are struggling. We know that life can look very different for everyone, but we also feel the responsibility to help where we are able.  Our vision: To impact thousands by educating, supporting, and growing a community that values caring for one another, no matter the circumstances of life.  As Michigan Trout Addicts, we hope to be a positive light in a world filled with negativity and criticism.  #WeAreMichiganTroutAddicts
