About Coulee Region TU

Coulee Region Trout Unlimited is 501 c3 non-profit all volunteer organization and chapter #278 of Trout Unlimited. CRTU began in 1974 and serves Crawford, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, and Vernon counties in Wisconsin's Driftless Region.

CRTU was the recipient of the 2020-21 Wisconsin Trout Unlimited Silver Trout Award, thanks to all the work by our volunteers.

We will resume meetings in September but be looking here and on our Facebook page for details about summer activities. See the bottom of this page for a note about Trout Fest and Cozad's Driftless One Fly.

We are looking for ideas for next season's meetings - shoot us a message on our "Contact us" page, through Instagram, or Facebook.
