Who We Are
Montana Trout Unlimited conserves, protects and restores Montana’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. Our work includes:
- Advocating for clean water, robust stream flows, healthy habitat, and naturally functioning watersheds and floodplains;
- Promoting fishery management that preserves and improves populations of wild fish, with a priority on native species, such as cutthroat trout, bull trout and grayling;
- Working with agencies and landowners to conduct projects across the state that restore water quality, streamflows, healthy riparian habitats and natural stream function;
- Defending the rights of anglers to access Montana’s streams and rivers for fishing and other recreational purposes; and
- Educating the public about the importance of clean water and healthy wild fisheries.
Founded in 1964, Montana Trout Unlimited is the only statewide grassroots organization dedicated solely to conserving and restoring coldwater fisheries. Montana Trout Unlimited is comprised of 13 chapters representing approximately 4,500 Trout Unlimited members.
Montana Trout Unlimited is governed by volunteer directors from each of the state’s local TU chapters. It is financially independent of TU National and contributions to Montana Trout Unlimited are tax-deductible and support conservation, protection and restoration efforts in Montana.
