West Denver TU has a long-standing relationship with the Windy Peak Outdoor Lab (part of Jefferson County Public Schools), dating back almost 20 years. We helped construct the pond and docks on the site. We present programs for sixth graders where we teach stream ecology, aquatic entomology, conservation, and fly tying. All of the tools and materials for fly tying and the rods for fishing are provided by the chapter.
Welcome to the West Denver Chapter, Trout Unlimited
We understand that coldwater fisheries are vital to a healthy environment and offer priceless recreational opportunities. For everyone’s well-being, we conserve and restore these waters.
We love to fish. Our monthly meetings include a Fly Tying Corner where members learn new patterns for their fishing adventures. Speaker presentations may discuss fishing area rivers, new nymphing techniques, or conservation challenges facing Colorado anglers. Member camaraderie builds through fishing trips, volunteer activities, and chapter picnics.
We are dedicated to coldwater fisheries conservation and community outreach. Our membership supports local stream cleanups and restoration, water quality monitoring on Clear Creek, youth programs, fundraisers, and more.
We are in great company. West Denver Chapter, Trout Unlimited (WDTU) was founded in Colorado in 1974, and now has 1,100+ members across western metro Denver. Colorado Trout Unlimited (CTU) has existed at the state level since 1969, and National Trout Unlimited (NTU) originally formed in Michigan in 1959. TU members’ voices are heard locally, state-wide, and nationally.
