Do you make your sighs of relief audible? I sure have been lately.
Periodically, we’ll pose questions to a ” fly-fishing roundtable” of TU anglers in hopes of spurring discussion among all anglers about all things fly fishing.
Trout Unlimited staff and Ashokan-Pepacton chapter members assisted NYS Department of Environmental Conservation in completing the East Branch Delaware River Trout Habitat Improvement Project (HIP). The project underway since 2016, was designed to better understand...
But now we made the decision that we were going to leave no kid behind. Our family was going to do something great together. We were all going to complete the Utah Cutthroat Slam.
Nymphing clearly has its place in fly fishing, and while most anglers might prefer to practice the Godly act of catching trout on a dry fly, knowing how to drift a nymph under an indicator will certainly help you catch more fish
Steps to reduce climate warming emissions are urgently needed to avert the most devastating harms that climate change could wreak on trout and salmon habitat
I recommend Devin’s book Tactical Fly Fishing. It’s a classic. But so is the shop. If you’re ever in northern Utah, stop by and see them in Springville. Or check out their online presence at Tactical Fly Fisher.
Salmon in Idaho likely have four to five generations before they become extinct; not human generations but fish generations—16 to 20 years. Congressman Simpson offers a bold proposal that would save them
We all know that 2020 was far from a normal year. Despite the challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, Trout Unlimited’s Great Lakes team soldiered on. The team, which continues to grow, was able to accomplish many key projects...
Max Yzaguirre is the real deal. And we’re grateful he’s a TU Business member.
I take advantage of every opportunity to go out fishing. The idea of being able to disconnect from the rest of the world and focus on one thing is an amazing feeling. Another aspect about fishing that I enjoy is the community of people around it. I am always meeting new faces and learning new techniques and ideas.
We can see that as time goes on, the world needs more and more help from the destruction we have done to it. We all need to take start taking a part in conservation, the world needs it.
I have always felt obligated to preserve the nature that I know and love for others to enjoy as well. I have always noticed that whenever communities or even small groups of people come together to clean up or collect data from a stream, they seem to become closer together than they were before.
My favorite way to help the environment is still going fishing with my dad. However, I can’t do that right now, since my dad was deployed to the Middle East this year. Even so, I am still doing what I can to help the environment and learning more every day. So that when he comes home I will be able to show him all the cool stuff I did protecting the places we love.
If the land is so important to me, then I can only imagine how important the land must be to them. Without conservation, the great Bristol Bay region of Alaska wouldn’t be what it is today
But then, amidst the chaos of the fight that just took place, I took my eyes off the magnificent creature resting in my hands, an olive woolly bugger still hanging from her bottom lip, and looked up. I gazed around at the exploding colors of red and yellow amongst the trees, the baby blue sky looming over us and at the contorted reflection of all this madness across the waters. It beat out any painting or photograph I’ve ever seen.
Fish for the Future is a two-guide team working to encourage all anglers to do their part to protect chinook salmon on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers.

Understanding the mayfly life cycle will help you catch more trout
Engaging with young anglers about conservation, policy and people It is easy to get cynical about the future, until you spend some time with it. I recently had a great time virtually speaking with over 100 college students who belong to our TU Costa 5 Rivers clubs and...
Perhaps you have gone deep sea fishing or seen photos of fish like bass or rockfish with, what looks like, their stomach “exploding” out of their mouth. The organ that can be seen protruding out of the fish is actually the swim bladder that had suffered barotrauma, or rapid change in pressure inside the fish’s body. Luckily, trout can quickly “burp” the air, mostly oxygen, out from their swim bladder to avoid this type of trauma.
The Salmon SuperHwy has achieved more than 50 percent of its goal of restoring fish connectivity to 95 percent of historically available habitat across the Tillamook—Nestucca Sub-basin
