Trout Unlimited's mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. The Nutmeg Chapter of Trout Unlimited (# 217) is based in Fairfield and comprised of the towns of Fairfield, Westport, Weston, Easton, Redding, Trumbull, Monroe, Bridgeport, Stratford, Milford and Shelton. We focus on conserving wild and native trout in local brooks and rivers and on connecting K-12 students with their watersheds through the Trout In the Classroom environmental education program (http://www.troutintheclassroom.org/).
By the next generation, Trout Unlimited will ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters.
Who We Are
Founded in Michigan in 1959, Trout Unlimited today is a national non-profit organization with 300,000 members and supporters dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. Our staff and volunteers work from coast to coast to protect, reconnect, restore and sustain trout and salmon habitat on behalf of today’s anglers and coming generations of sportsmen and women who value the connection between healthy, intact habitat and angling opportunity.
From forested rivers like the Farmington in Connecticut to the pristine waters of Alaska’s Bristol Bay and all points in between, Trout Unlimited’s work spans nearly a million miles of cold water all across North America. Trout Unlimited is the most effective coldwater fisheries conservation organization in the country.
