Welcome to Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited

Trout Unlimited in California is making some changes and you are involved. My name is Dustin Rocksvold and I am the President of the Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Sac-Sierra TU is one of 11 chapters located in California working to Protect, Reconnect and Restore our natural heritage and cold water fishing opportunities.

Trout Unlimited in California has almost 10,000 members, but not all of them were assigned to a local chapter. TU volunteers in California working with TU's professional staff have re-aligned chapter boundaries so that ALL TU members are part of a local or regional chapter. You are receiving this message because you are now a member of the Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Welcome! Sac-Sierra TU is focused on Protecting, Reconnecting and Restoring the cold water fisheries of the Western Sierra Nevada.

Do you love salmon and steelhead? Interested in getting your hands dirty and working on a stream bank stabilization project? Want to learn more about Sac-Sierra and how you can help? Contact Kevin Mather at for more information or go to http://www.sac-sierratu.org/volunteer-opportunities.

Welcome to Sac-Sierra TU!

Sincerely,

Dustin Rocksvold
President

Mokelumne Wild and Scenic Legislation

Senator Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) introduced the Mokelumne Wild and Scenic bill (SB 1199) in April. This is an opportune time for TU to come in and rally support to protect the proposed 37 miles of river between Salt Springs and Pardee.
The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors recently unanimously voted in support of the bill, and now efforts are focused on getting the support of EBMUD.
There is an upcoming meeting at EBMUD Tuesday May 13th at 1 pm in Oakland. I know it's in the middle of the day, but if any of you or anyone from your chapters could attend and perhaps speak as a representative of the the "sportsmens" voice, that would be great!
