About 20 logjams were modified on the Coldwater River to provide better fish cover, stabilize banks, and open new spawning beds.
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.

About 150 people helped clean up Buck Creek in Wyoming and Grandville in August of 2019.
A big thanks to the many volunteers who turned out for an early morning trash cleanup on the Rogue River.
Trout Unlimited and the White River Watershed Partnership are teaming up to complete a watershed inventory utilizing TU’s newly developed RIVERS mobile app.
This clean up is just one part of a multi-step process in assessing, improving and conserving Buck Creek. This will be an active event where volunteers will be walking and exercising as they make a positive impact upon the Buck Creek Watershed.
Trout Unlimited has received funding from the U.S. Forest Service, through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, to plant nearly 17,000 trees along coldwater streams in Michigan.
