Maine's Trout Camp draws youth for a week of intensive trout-related activities.
Trout Unlimited is helping the Wisconsin DNR identify trout streams that can be opened for public angling access through easement agreements with landowners.
In a news release, Aaron Kindle, Colorado field coordinator for Trout Unlimited, called the designation “a huge conservation win that ensures there will be no degradation of these pristine waters.
‘The designation will safeguard the streams, wetlands and tributaries of a nationally significant watershed, and the genetically pure populations of cutthroat trout found there.”
“Our main concern with HR 4272 is that it disregards the time and effort that our members, sportsmen, ranchers and motorized users have put into travel management over the last two decades,” said Greg McReynolds, regional representative for Trout Unlimited.
“I’m not going to say travel management is perfect, because it’s not. It’s a collaborative process and the nature of collaboration is that we can’t all get what we want.
“It is a process though, and in the great majority of forest around the country, it is one that has worked well. There are many travel management plans in place that are a thoughtful balance of access and habitat and many of those have been in place for years.”
