At TU we spend a lot of time reconnecting and restoring rivers. It’s cool work in itself, and the stoneflies and other stream critters certainly appreciate it. But, if we’re being honest, we really do it for the fish … and for the fishing.
It's not just abused streams that can be improved. Even the finest trout waters can be made better. TU's own Stephen Trafton, former Executive Director for the Henry's Fork Foundation, talks about the hard work that improved the already spectacular fishing on this gem of the rockies.
