West Denver Trout Unlimited had a successful year. All three longstanding events have remained strong and still provide the benefit of education and providing operating funds for our chapter. West Denver Trout Unlimited did make contributions totaling $8,970 with the beneficiaries being Colorado Trout Unlimited, Warren College of Natural Resources at CSU (In the form of a fellowship) and Joseph’s Journey. Due to the judicious investment and management by the chapter leadership over the life of the chapter, the chapter has a healthy savings which will allow it to leverage these funds when the proper conservation investment presents itself.
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.
