Joey Chait Youth Initiative Fund

Teaching children the importance of protecting California’s fish and rivers.

Joseph W. Chait was a native San Franciscan and supporter of California Trout and environmental causes. An avid fly fisherman and outdoor enthusiast, Joey had a smile and laugh that could fill a room. He was passionate about his family, his work, his community and conservation. As a devoted father and grandfather, Joey cared deeply about children and their future. He was a man who put family and true friendship above all else. In the spirit of Joey’s desire to inspire others, a group of his fishing buddies partnered with California Trout to establish this Fund in his memory.
