What is TU Costa 5 Rivers?

The Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers Program is a national network of TU-affiliated college fly fishing clubs. As the capstone of the TU Headwaters Youth Program, 5 Rivers clubs seek to engage current and aspiring fly anglers on their campuses nationwide. 5 Rivers clubs bring Trout Unlimited’s mission to life on their campuses through conservation projects, fishing trips, community outreach, and collaboration with their local TU chapter.

The 5 Rivers Brand Promise

Bottom line, fly angling is fun. Everything about it is fun. Doing it, talking about it, teaching it, learning it, watching it – it’s all a damn good time!

We are an electrified community of fly anglers eager to teach, learn, and conserve all things fly fishing. Some of us were born with fly rods in our hands, others are just following a new curiosity, and most are somewhere in-between.

This is where 5 Rivers comes alive! We are active in all things fly fishing; club meetings, film screenings, tying nights, networking, quick trips, big trips, industry access, and above all – conservation and stewardship.


I’m interested, now what?
