River Conservation

We believe in maintaining the purity of our rivers. The “Holy Waters” are dear to all of us – and protecting this wonderful natural resource is a hot topic to everyone at the shop. We encourage you participate in river conversation efforts in order to safeguard our rivers and the areas that we fish.

Here you’ll find links to many conversation groups. Becoming a member, volunteering, and supporting these organizations is a great way to help protect the rivers and streams in your area so that the generations to come can enjoy them as we do.

Trout Unlimited

Today TU is a national organization with more than 150,000 members organized into about 400 chapters from Maine to Montana to Alaska. This dedicated grassroots army is matched by a respected staff of lawyers, policy experts and scientists, who work out of more than 30 offices nationwide. These conservation professionals ensure that TU is at the forefront of fisheries restoration work at the local, state and national levels.

 

The organization remains committed to applying "the very best information and thinking available" in its conservation work and has developed cutting-edge tools such as the Conservation Success Index (CSI), a sophisticated framework for assessing the health of coldwater fish species throughout their native range. Whether this range encompasses a few hundred miles or multiple states, the CSI helps the organization target its efforts toward those populations most in need of protection or restoration.

 

The CSI also enables TU to measure its progress in achieving the bold goals laid out in its mission and vision. These goals require the organization to work at increasingly larger scales, and to collaborate with other conservation interests, local communities and state and federal partners to begin to rebuild the natural resiliency of watersheds. Such efforts are crucial if North America's trout and salmon are to survive climate change and the host of threats facing them at the start of the 21st century.
