We protect important habitat and work on the ground to restore the special places where trout and salmon live.
Connecting conservation and science
Nearly every trout and most salmon species have been proposed for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Generally, the focus is staving off extinction rather than recovery. Trout Unlimited Senior Scientist Helen Neville, and other TU science staffers, led an effort involving state and federal agencies and universities to develop a population viability assessment tool that will help agencies, such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, make decisions to recover fish as opposed to minimizing their decline.

We’re more than just a fishing club — but fishing is in our DNA. If we take care of the fish, the fishing will take care of itself.
Veterans Services Partnership
Trout Unlimited’s Veterans Service Partnership is a nationwide effort initiated in 2011 to bring the healing power of the water to those who have served our nation so boldly. We are seeing miracles, large and small, on a regular and increasing basis.
Not only does the VSP work to help veterans recovering from the horrors of war, it serves families of veterans and survivors of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. At TU, we understand that fishing and water have true healing properties—that removing stress and introducing peace and rythm to the lives of real American heroes can be beneficial, both in the short term and for years to come.
Help us honor those who served us so unselfishly.
We sleep, breathe and occasionally even eat trout and salmon — and we love to talk about it.
