On April 27, 2021, SWMTU held a virtual seminar with national TU staff including Nichol DeMol, Jamie Vaughn, and Jake Lemon on the big projects they're working on in Michigan.
SWMTU’s mission is to conserve, protect and restore West Michigan’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds and to provide a forum for the exchange of information concerning coldwater fisheries and the techniques and the sport of trout fishing.
This map shows the chapter’s geographic footprint and the rivers that are a focus of ours.
You can learn more about the chapter’s activities by following our conservation thread on this website, or by reviewing the following pages detailing various partnerships and environmental recommendations.
To get involved, or to get more information on these projects, please contact us.
This year we feature a virtual presentation with Dr. Bryan Burroughs, Executive Director of Michigan Trout Unlimited and Michigan DNR Director Dan Eichinger.
This online presentation with Chris Wood, CEO and President of Trout Unlimited, was held on March 16, 2021.
