Colorado Trout Unlimited has over 10,000 members representing 23 chapters across the state. They act as advocates and conservators for their home rivers, conducting projects in stream restoration, water quality protection, and more. The on-the-ground, grassroots efforts of our members and volunteers are what sets CTU apart from most other conservation groups.
Our Mission is to perpetuate the wildlife resources of the state, to provide a quality state parks system, and to provide enjoyable and sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities that educate and inspire current and future generations to serve as active stewards of Colorado’s natural resources.

Eagle County, Colorado is home to 55 miles of the Upper Colorado River and the entire 77-mile length of the Eagle River, as well as their many tributaries. These waterways are threatened by development, urbanization, highways, recreation, agriculture, diversions and much more. We protect and enhance river health through water- quality monitoring, education and restoration projects.
