Protection of coldwater fisheries is our core mission and this means protection of the water, watersheds and aquifers upon which trout, steelhead and salmon depend for survival.  Public policy decisions, especially those ultimately made in St. Paul can have huge consequences for the health and long term viability of Minnesota’s coldwater fisheries.  Ensuring clean, cold water is central to fisheries protection.  Educating decision makers and advocating for sound management of natural systems is thus a vital part of what Trout Unlimited members do.

Minnesota TU also provides regular blog posts and action alerts to rally support and interest in pertinent legislative decisions. Responding to these by contacting your local policymakers can ensure that your voice is heard.
