“Up and down. Up and down. Everyday I’m reminded this trail is the CDT, the Continental Divide Trail, and not the Valley trail. The trail does not follow the easiest path south, it follows the mountains that separate the waters of this country. Instead of walking across that valley towards the Tetons, the trail climbs the mountainous hills up to Yellowstone. Though there were animal sightings and incredible views, I still would have preferred to take an easier route.”
By Jim Strogen I love to catch fish, but helping others be successful with their first fish or teaching them new fly fishing techniques is just as much fun for me. We all have home water where our knowledge of a particular lake or stream can tip the scales for someone...
Fall across North America generally means low and clear water, particularly on freestone trout streams where flows aren’t manipulated by upstream dams. And that means wary trout in skinny conditions. Chasing fall trout during low water can be a lot of fun for...
Join me tomorrow – that’s Friday, September 25 – at 11 AM AKDT @troutunlimited when we talk with Brad @alaskaflyfishinggoods about fishing in AK. After all, how can five species of salmon plus rainbows, steelhead, cutthroats, Arctic char and grayling (and more) be anything but awesome?
Tired of the same river or road playlist? Interested in taking up fly fishing or learning more about it? Or maybe you would like some insight on how to build a career in the fly fishing or conservation arenas? Tune in to the new Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers podcast,...
The light smoke in Washington, D.C., signaled devastation in the West. In California, for example, at least 26 people have perished from wildfire, and more than 7,000 structures were destroyed. In Oregon, the Almeda fire, alone, destroyed nearly 2,400 homes and killed at least three people, with more missing
Join me on September 28 – that’s Monday – at 1 PM PDT @troutunlimited when we talk with Chad @soulriverinc about his exciting new “Love Is King” initiative. Clear your calendar and tune in – this will be awesome
Richard Louv joined Trout Unlimited to discuss public lands, the pandemic and his newest book, “Our Wild Calling.” Louv, a former journalist, is best known for his 2005 book, “Last Child in the Woods,” which sparked an international movement to...
If you are active in the outdoors, it’s hard to beat living in the American West. That’s because all states west of the Great Plains have big swaths of public lands available for fishing and hunting. Except when big swaths of extraordinary wildfire shut them down....
Meet the Trout Unlimited staffer behind the newest Home Rivers Initiative on the Battenkill River in Vermont and New York
We have college fly fishing clubs all over the country, and this network of college anglers participates in leadership summits, regional meet-ups, virtual fishing tournaments and more. The 5 Rivers program has its own podcast, Emerging, and its own virtual magazin
Often referred to as the hardest-working river in America, the Colorado River provides drinking water to 40 million people and irrigation water to 5.5 million acres of farm and ranch land across the Southwestern United States
Minerals like cobalt, lithium, rare earth elements and other minerals are necessary components in electric vehicles, solar panels, and for energy storage from wind farms. Simply put, they are the raw materials upon which a clean energy future is being built. When coupled with a reduction in the use of fossil fuels, renewable energy technology can help us address climate change
By Jake Lemon Perhaps no bug is more significant to anglers than the mayfly. We chase them, imitate them, even tattoo their visage on our skin. Now a new type of mayfly is emerging on rivers and streams in the US. The Mayfly Sensor...
‘Tis the season for baitfish patterns. See Matt Callies of Loon Outdoors tie a simple baitfish pattern
Nature deprivation is a real thing, and I’m witnessing the impacts of both being exposed to the wild and willingly foregoing exposure in both of my kids
Trout Unlimited has long been advocating for federal legislation on climate change, urging this effort to come from the top down, and in Arizona, we are pushing our members of Congress on this issue
While you and your family think through fall outings, we would like to encourage you to take a trip to the Eklutna River valley – we created a family field trip for the Eklutna River watershed so that your family can learn while exploring the area
Baitfish imitations work great in the fall, particularly where migrating brown trout are found. As these fish move out of lakes or upstream from big water to spawning habitat, they just get more and more aggressive
If we are to effectively conserve natural places, we need everyone. Being outside makes my life richer, and I want everyone to know that joy — or at least taste it the way I have and see if they like it. We can’t take off our hats, but we can certainly impact others’ experiences for better or for worse
By Chris Collier In August, TU worked with our partners in northeast Wisconsin to remove a remnant logging dam in the North Branch Oconto River. This is the second of three dams TU and our partners will remove on the river in Wabeno, Wisc. While difficult to see in...
