Trout Unlimited is a national organization with more than 140,000 volunteers organized into about 400 chapters from Maine to Montana to Alaska. This dedicated grassroots army is matched by a respected staff of lawyers, policy experts and scientists, who work out of more than 30 offices nationwide. These conservation professionals ensure that TU is at the forefront of fisheries restoration work at the local, state and national levels.

We encourage everyone in the Yampa Valley who is interested in fly-fishing to stop by our next meeting. At the Yampa Valley Fly Fishers we hope to foster friendships based on a common love for our river system as well as promote continued preservation of rivers, streams and lakes around Steamboat Springs. Feel free to send us an email if you have any additional questions.
