It’s been a busy and amazingly productive year for Trout Unlimited in California. With the help of our 10,000 California members and our dozens of agency and project partners, we reached major milestones on many of our highest priority initiatives. All of these highlight TU’s successful formula for protecting and restoring trout and salmon: a reliance on science, partnerships, and pragmatic solutions that benefit both people and the environment.
In 2016 we took a “big step forward on the road to redemption for the Klamath River.” We kept or returned more than 100 million gallons of water in rivers and streams through partnerships with ranchers, farmers, and landowners. We restored habitat in dozens of miles of steelhead and salmon streams. We kept some 8,000 cubic yards of sediment from old roads out of prime coho and steelhead habitat. We removed multiple barriers to fish passage from San Luis Obispo to Arcata, including the highest priority dam in the Russian River watershed.

Good evening team!
I am so thrilled to announce that “The Arcade Creek Project: A Mosaic of Sustainability” is now available to view for FREE on Amazon Prime Instant Video! Please feel free to share this with anyone and everyone! In total, the film was accepted to 24 film festivals and won 11 awards. The amazing success this film achieved would definitely have not been possible without your contribution. I am extremely grateful.

Trout Unlimited in California is making some changes and you are involved. My name is Dustin Rocksvold and I am the webmaster for the Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Sac-Sierra TU is one of 13 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.
