Attention anglers, conservationists and river goers! Trout Unlimited, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Forest Service tagged 22 rainbow trout and 3 brown trout with radio tags in the Little Truckee River (LTR). This year long monitoring effort will help better manage and understand the LTR system, and help better implement fish habitat improvement projects. Not only this,  the data gained through monitoring will be essential to understanding trout streams all over the United States. We need volunteers to help track trout! If you are interested in tracking these trout in the field please email Sam Sedillo: or call (408) 718-9897.

You will be trained on how to operate the tracking equipment, data entry, and have an unparalleled look into how trout move through the Little Truckee River.

If you are lucky enough to catch or find a tagged trout (image above), please take a picture, measure (if possible) and email the info to: . A huge thanks to all those involved especially the Sagebrush Chapter of Trout Unlimited for funding the project and California Fly Fishers Unlimited for lending us the tracking equipment.
