Access NLC Workgroup

The Access Workgroup is currently focused on providing support and resources for the protection of our nation’s public lands, which protect some of the best remaining intact watersheds holding wild and native trout. It also evaluates stream access laws across the country, regularly reviews the TU Stream Access Policy for changes and recommendations, and develops tools for chapters and councils to use in building voluntary access programs at state and federal levels.
