March Chapter Meeting - Canceled

This meeting is canceled as we do our part to stop the spread of illness.  Hopefully we are back on track for the April 15 meeting.

Cozad's Driftless 1Fly - Canceled

Sadly, this fantastic event is canceled in an effort to stop the spread of illness.  This was our main youth outreach fundraiser for the year.  Regardless, we are still on track to sponsor the kids fishing event at the Coon Creek Trout Fest which typically sees 200 kids and families enjoy time on the water catching fish.  

 This money is donated to Coulee Region TU which has used the funds to support:

  • the kid's fishing event at Coon Creek Trout Fest 

  • sponsor youth anglers to go to the state fish camp

  • sponsor a local youth to attend the National TU Teen Summit

  • purchase supplies and equipment for Trout in the Classroom projects at local high schools

You can enter a team of 4, volunteer as a stream judge, or just come to the closing ceremonies and raffle at 6 p.m. at the Legion in Viroqua.  Find more information here.

Kids fishing at Coon Creek Trout Fest

Saturday, May 9, 2020 - Volunteers needed from approximately 8:00 a.m. until about 1 p.m.  You don't need to be there the whole time if you are not able.  

CRTU Member Volunteers Needed - Assist kids on Coon Creek as they fish for trout that we stock in addition to the natural fish already there.  We also need people to do fly casting demonstrations/lessons and help beginners with fly tying.  - Email  CRTUupdates@gmail.com to volunteer.

Where:  Coon Valley Veterans Memorial Park

More Information From The Organizer:  https://www.facebook.com/events/616173228830583/

Coulee Region Trout Unlimited will be sponsoring a booth again, including stocking trout in Coon Creek.  We will assist the kids with worm fishing and teach fly casting and fly tying.  We will be giving away a bunch of door prizes including spinning outfits.

The CRTU team will be arriving a bit before 8:00 AM to stock the fish and set up the tent.  After that things get easier.  Lots of time to catch up, lie about fishing and not tell each-other about our favorite spots!

This is another family-friendly event with an opportunity for kids to catch some BIG fish.  CRTU could use member volunteers to help for a short while manning the table, demonstrating fly casting and helping kids learn to fish
