I grew up on a small lake in Connecticut, and both my father and best friend loved to fish. Subsequently I added the pursuit of trout and saltwater species in their respective habitats. Wade or float fishing medium to large streams is my favorite. A TU Life Member for over 20 years, and more recently Cape Cod chapter Secretary and Treasurer, I have been impressed with the number of dedicated volunteers working at the local level to protect and restore our cold water resources.

Peter Schilling is a Life Member and has been active for more than 30 years with Trout Unlimited. He is a former President of the Greater Boston Chapter and a former MA/RI Council Chair. His passion is fishing for Atlantic Salmon and anadromous trout species.
I started my fishing passion at the age of ten on the shores of Lake Tahoe where I caught my first trout. Since then I have enjoyed every day on the water. Before we moved to the Cape in 1996, I have been fortunate to fish in streams, rivers and lakes in California, Alaska and Colorado. My Colorado friends introduced me to fly fishing and I have never looked back. On the Cape I fish both fresh and saltwater from a kayak, and if I am lucky I will catch a trout and a striper on the same day!
I joined CCTU six years ago. As a Board member, I have grown to recognize the conservation efforts of TU and the truly incredible work we have done here on the Cape. We have a great volunteer organization that is dedicated to keeping our coldwater fisheries preserved. I am very honored to be part of this great organization.

I was introduced to fly fishing by my fiancé (now husband) in 2012 and learned to fly fish at CCTU’s Fly Fishing School in May of 2013. The first fish I caught was a bluegill in the Charles River. Since then, I quickly went “Past Go” and have fished for Atlantic Salmon and Sea Run Brown Trout in Iceland and Atlantic Salmon in Quebec. I also like to chase after stripers during the worm hatch right here on Cape Cod. I joined the Board as a member in 2014 and became Vice President in 2017. Served as President from 2018 to 2020 and now serve as Vice Chair, Communications for the MA-RI TU Council.
