Our Mission
Minnesota Trout Unlimited represents several thousand members and six chapters in Minnesota. Its mission is to conserve, protect, restore, and sustain Minnesota’s cold water fisheries and their watersheds.




Miles of Stream Restored


What We Do
MNTU believes that a strong community of anglers, conservation organizations and businesses working together and engaging with the resource is key to maintaining the waters we care about. Together MNTU has restored over 40 miles of trout streams. Aside from habitat work, MNTU believes strongly in engaging the community through youth and adult fishing and education programs.
Join us on our next project!
Find your chapter and help out your local waters.
MNTU carries out a number of habitat improvement projects each year thanks to funding from Minnesota's Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund and other sources.
