California Trout recently awarded the Joe Paul Award to Tom Weseloh — CalTrout’s North Coast Region Manager for over 20 years.
This award, which is CalTrout’s highest honor, acknowledges an individual’s lifetime achievement in protecting and restoring wild trout and steelhead.
According to Gary Arabian, CalTrout Board Member of over 15 years, “Because of Tom’s passionate commitment to our mission and his dedication and complete focus on the fish, today many of the rivers and streams on the North Coast have healthier populations of steelhead and salmon than when he began his work for us 20 years ago.“
Tom’s many achievements include the following:
Tom always stayed focused on CalTrout’s mission and as he has told so many of us, “It’s all about the fish and the work we do to protect them.”
