Why We Support CalTrout

Laura and I have been supporting CalTrout for years given our environmental interests and passion for fly fishing.

We became much more involved in the organization several years ago when we entered the Five Rivers Challenge.

The event got us much more familiar with several of the projects as well as the staff of CalTrout.

And, we had never had as intense a fishing experience as we did at Clearwater Lodge participating in our first “Challenge”!

 

 

 

 

Laura and I are impressed with CalTrout’s steelhead restoration projects in Southern California– specifically on the Santa Ynez River.

The river is a thirty-minute drive from Santa Barbara and has an incredible pedigree of supporting steelhead in the tens of thousands long before I was born.

I can only imagine what it would be like to drive that short a distance and have world-class trout fishing.

 

 

"It’s a great feeling to get to know some of the people who work so hard to make CalTrout the vibrant organization that it is. 

 

Recognizing the incredible work they do—making our state a better place for all of us—gives us the sense that I’m affiliated with the right group."
