Thank you for visiting the Central Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited's website. We are an active group of TU members from the central sands area of Wisconsin with over 300 members who all share in a common goal: to conserve and protect our cold water resources.
Please take some time to look around our website to find out more about us by clicking on About Us, or by clicking on News to find out what we have been doing. You can also click on Activities and/or Calendar to find out more about planned activities and events. By clicking on River Keepers you can find out all about our water monitoring program and by clicking on Workdays, you can find out more about our stream restoration projects and activities.
Many of our members enjoy fly fishing and fly tying and you can find out more about Fly Tying by clicking on this tab. We support fishing by all legal methods, including spin fishing and live bait fishing for trout. Our Multimedia section includes pictures and video's of some of our activities and other things you might be interested in, so you might want to check that out.
The Central Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited Annual Robert. L. Hunt Commemorative Lecture Series will feature Dr. Ray J. White as this year's speaker.
With most streams devastated by decades of unwise farming and other activities, the Wisconsin Conservation Department (now DNR) began a statewide effort to restore trout habitat in 1950. As the program developed, it became increasingly science-based. This has been part of a national and international trend that has blossomed, especially in the last 25 years. Other government agencies, Trout Unlimited, and private firms do habitat work, as well. Stream management and changes in farming led to a vastly improved trout resource. Now, trout fishing is far better than in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. Recent advances in stream science and management from many sources hold great promise. Modern practice emphasizes managing in concert with natural stream processes. There remains much need for a more science-based approach.
The meeting is open to the public and there is no charge for admission. Please plan to attend and bring a friend to this interesting and educational program.
The following is the tentative meeting and program schedule for Central Wisconsin Trout Unlimited. Please check the "Home Page" for any changes that will be listed prior to the meeting or event.
