Minnesota Trout Unlimited Protect • Reconnect • Restore • Sustain


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 82 miles of trout streams. Aside from habitat work, MNTU believes strongly in engaging the community through youth and adult fishing and education programs.
