History of Protecting the Best


Since its early days, CalTrout has been using advocacy, legislative influence, and when needed, legal efforts to protect California’s wild fish and rivers for future generations.

It takes unyielding vigilance to protect the best of California’s natural resources.

Taking Action


CalTrout believes in conservation for all Californians, and that good public policy keeps our natural resources protected for all interests.

Using our collective legislative approach, led by Staff Attorney Redgie Collins, we build off our ground experience, community support, science, media, and advocacy experience to advance mission-critical policies programs and funding.

CalTrout continues this effort today by building relationships with legislators and key legislative staff on statewide conservation and by supporting, opposing, and sponsoring key legislative initiatives.
