About Us

California Trout is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect and restore wild trout, steelhead, salmon and their waters throughout California.

Established in 1971, we focus our efforts across three critical conservation initiatives:

  • Restoring Steelhead and Salmon
  • Saving Imperiled Native Trout
  • Protecting California’s Blue Ribbon Waters

With over 30 projects across six regions, CalTrout is having a significant and lasting impact for future generations to enjoy.
