Golden Trout Circle

California Trout is the only organization focused exclusively on protecting and restoring wild trout, steelhead, salmon and their waters throughout California. CalTrout’s major donors — our Golden Trout Circle members — make a significant financial donation every year allowing us to pursue this mission.

Because of their belief in and commitment to the work we do, our Golden Trout Circle members donate at least $1,000/year or $85/month to the organization. We recognize the passion shared by these members and welcome them as an integral part of our team. Through regular communications and special events, Golden Trout Circle members are connected to CalTrout and to fellow Golden Trout Circle members.

Golden Trout Circle Trinity River Steelhead Fishing Trip

2014: November 30 – December 6

On the granddaddy of CalTrout trips, you’ll fish a two-day slot on the infamous Trinity River and stay at the Strawhouse Lodge perched right on the banks of the river. Accommodations are first-rate as is the food. Today, CalTrout is one of a number of organizations involved in a large-scale Trinity restoration project aimed at increasing the naturally produced steelhead populations to 10,000 returning fish annually. Come experience the success we are having.
