Several times a year Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited provides volunteers to assist with surveys of Salmon and Steelhead in the watersheds of our territory. This enjoyable and educational activity is simply a walk along (and sometimes in) a creek or river while making a few notes, and its a perfect outing for ages 12 and up*.
The form below can be used at any time of the year to let us know you’d like to help.
When most people think of salmon and steelhead, they think of the big roiling rivers of the west coast: the Sacramento, the American, the Klamath & Trinity, the Columbia. While it's true salmon first appear in those rivers as they return from the ocean, where many of them are actually headed is to the little creeks and ravines that run right through our backyards.
There are several events throughout the year that Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited participates in. At some of these events, we have an information booth, or table. Volunteers are needed to staff these booths to hand out information on our chapter and spread the TU message.
If you are interested in helping to staff a booth at one of these events please fill in the contact form below.
We will be having a clean up on the North Fork American River at Iowa Hill Bridge as part of the Great Sierra River Clean Up on Sat. Sept 16... Contact Bill Templin for details.
Hope you all are doing well! I am happy to inform you that "The Arcade Creek Project: A Mosaic of Sustainability" is having an extremely successful festival run. We've only been in the festival circuit for just a few months and have already been accepted to 10 film festivals around the country!
However, what I'm most excited to tell you about is that our WORLD PREMIERE (the film's first public appearance) will be right here at the Sacramento Film and Music Festival! The event will take place at the Jean Runyon Theatre in the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium (1515 J Street, Sacramento) on Saturday, September 23 at 10:00 AM. The world premiere is every film's most important event, and of course, since you all are the reason the documentary became a success, we would love for you to attend.
South Fork Kings River Cleanup

Where: Meet at the area just north (left when facing it) of the Cedar Grove Store, Cedar Grove/Kings Canyon, CA
River Cleanup Objectives:
Please help us celebrate Spring Summer and Fall by cleaning up over 16 miles of river bank (from Boyden Cavern to Roads End where accessible) so that the river will be healthier and nroe visually pleasing. We select our clean-up dates to follow heavy use holiday weekends.
Inform participants on how we can all be better river stewards by practicing good habits that protect river quality, and habitat for the wild creatures that use the river and riparian corridors. ASssess the appearance of the river using visual 'snapshots' assessments. Bring your cameras to help us 'monitor' the appearace of the river and your fishing equipment too!
Besides the direct benefit of a cleaner river, the South Fork Kings River Cleanup Days provide opportunities for reminding everyone of the value of protecting their water resources.
By working in partnership with other organizations, local, state and federal agencies, and local businesses we can promote public awareness of the important role the South Fork Kings River Plays in our lives. We spend 2 nights/3 days camping, fishing, cleaning and enjoying the area.
