Trout Unlimited's Alaska Program works to preserve, protect and restore wild salmon and trout populations throughout Alaska. Through sound scientiﬁc data, strong grassroots outreach and advocacy, and hands-on involvement in conservation projects Trout Unlimited Alaska protects some of the most pristine and prized rivers on the planet, restores those that need some help, and engages the next generation of coldwater stewards in Alaska's natural heritage.

The Alaska staff focuses its work in two main regions: Southwest Alaska's Bristol Bay and Southeast Alaska's Tongass National Forest.
Save Bristol Bay Campaign – Bristol Bay is a wild salmon stronghold and a world-class fishing destination. It is currently at risk by the proposed development of a massive copper and gold mine called Pebble, located at the headwaters of the region's two most productive rivers. Learn more about how you can help protect this productive salmon and trout region.
Southeast Alaska/Tongass National Forest Salmon Conservation Projects – Salmon are an integral part of daily life in southeast Alaska and Trout Unlimited is developing plans to protect, restore and reconnect key salmon producing watersheds. Learn more about our on-the-ground projects, conservation strategies and how you can help.
