STFF partners with the Shasta Trinity Cascades Chapter of Trout Unlimited as our conservation partner.

TU's Vision:

By the next generation, Trout Unlimited will ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters

Founded in Michigan in 1959, Trout Unlimited is a national non-profit organization with 300,000 members and supporters dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. Volunteers work to protect, reconnect, restore and sustain trout and salmon habitat on behalf of today’s anglers and coming generations of sportsmen and women who value the connection between healthy, intact habitat and angling opportunity.

Trout Unlimited has a basic approach to its conservation strategy. First, we use the best available science to protect headwater spawning habitat for trout and salmon. We reconnect tributaries with their rivers to ensure resilience, and we restore waters where development has impacted trout and salmon and the opportunity to fish for them. Second, we sustain our work on the ground by:

  • Using the best science to drive conservation priorities

  • Promoting and maintaining a strong legal and regulatory framework to protect fish and fishing opportunity

  • Connecting with passionate anglers who want to give back to the resource they value so much

  • Increasing our ability to engage Trout Unlimited members in conservation by training, educating and building a strong community of angler advocates

  • Connecting with generous donors and helping them give to the fish they cherish and the places they love

  • Helping members connect and communicate with one another via our website, TROUT Magazine and the TU Blog
