The West Denver Chapter of TU is a non-profit organization serving anglers and environmentally conscious friends in an ongoing effort to fulfill the mission of Trout Unlimited:
...  Conserving, protecting and enhancing Colorado's coldwater fisheries through volunteerism, education and outreach.

We dedicate ourselves to presenting timely and informative news concerning local conservation, restoration and related topics. We also organize various outings, have educational programs, and conservation work. As volunteers, the results from our activities are both fun and satisfying. If you share our passions for conservation, then please consider joining and participating in Trout Unlimited. Also, be sure to sign up for our email list to receive updates on critical issues concerning fisheries conservation.
We hope you will bookmark our  site (http://www.wdtu.org) and visit often.

As you may know, our parent organization, Colorado Trout Unlimited (CTU), pays for a lobbyist. Her name is Jen Boulton and she knows her way around the State Capital. She monitors bills at the State level for CTU. Monthly, she puts out a Legislative Report on bills of interest to CTU. This past month, there are 2 bills she is asking CTU members to support:
1. Senate Bill (SB) 23—Agricultural Efficiency—It would allow agricultural producers in certain situations to install efficiency measures and requires the resulting water to be left in the stream.
2. SB 17—This bill would prohibit local governments from  approving new developments with more than 15 percent irrigated turf.  If anyone wants the CTU Legislative Reports emailed to them monthly, contact me and I’ll be sure you get a copy.

Let’s Go to the Movies!

If you’re a fly fishing nut (and who among us is not?) and like the movies, then you’ll want to attend a fly fishing film festival on the evening of March 28th. Nick Adler, fishing manager of the Golden River Sports shop, has made arrangements for a fly fishing movie bonanza to be held at the Foss Auditorium at the American Mountaineering Center. Food will be provided by Woody’s Pizza, and there will be free beer provided to attendees by Cannonball Creek. There will also be several manufacturing representatives donating products for a raffle.
Doors open at 6 PM, with the films starting around 7 PM. Raffle tickets will be $5, with all proceeds going to our Chapter! Information about the films being shown can be found at www.flyfilmtour.com/
