By Chad Kotke I am a fairly new employee to Trout Unlimited but my heart has been with TU since my childhood. My father wrote articles for the original Trout Magazine and he even still sports his original TU coffee mug, which he received as...

Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the key permit for the proposed Pebble Mine and announced that it found the proposed Pebble mine would cause significant degradation to the Bristol Bay region
Finding things to be thankful for this week — especially this year — can be a challenge. But if we look deep enough, we can find them. I chose to look in nature. The brightest green lichen on dark volcanic rocks pop against the drab fall...
Crash and Kiltsman stayed with us for the first day out of town. The year before they had done the Appalachian Trail and they kept telling us it was harder than this trail. Not so much in terms of length but in terms of elevation gain and loss. Kiltsman got his name for the Scottish kilt he wears, no matter the weather.
Prolonged horseback trips into remote wilderness areas was actually part of the job description when I started working for Trout Unlimited.

The Caddis Fly Angling Shop in Eugene, OR has been around for over 40 years, long enough to see its influence expand from a great regional shop to a real force on the fly fishing scene.
I’m a “freelance” fly fisher by trade. Even on new water, I tend to look for what appears to be familiar. Long, deep runs. Structure. Riffles. Tailouts. Rising fish. And when I see the latter, I become somewhat laser-focused. Rising fish are feeding fish, and...
Editor’s note: As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll on everyday life, TU is shining some important light on our partners in the fly-fishing industry in hopes of sharing with our members and supporters the efforts everyone is taking to adapt and...
Regardless of how you see them, these harmless creatures have an important role in the riparian ecosystem. They break down leaves in streams to start the food chain, are food for trout, and can even indicate clean water.
