I love watching how excited kids get about these projects. It's just gret to expose young blood to the joy of trout and trout fishing.

How many TiC programs is TU involved with across the country?

Great video Lilli. A perfect intro guide to TIC. Utah finally is getting on board with our first TIC program in 2014. It took a lot of hard work, but thanks to Bob Diblee and his team, we got the go ahead from the DNR. Can't wait to see them grow.
