Trout Unlimited -
Conserving, restoring, and protecting North America's coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.
The Tualatin Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited is a coldwater fisheries conservation organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the native runs of trout, steelhead, and salmon that define our region and heritage.
Our over 600-person group consists of Trout Unlimited members who reside in Northwest Oregon, specifically throughout the Portland area west of the Willamette River, including the towns of Aloha, Banks, Beaverton, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Lake Oswego, Newberg, Sherwood, Tigard, and Tualatin, and extending to the coast.
Our chapter focuses our on-the-ground conservation efforts in the Tualatin Valley and coastal watersheds of northwest Oregon, including the Necanicum River. Recent conservation projects have involved riparian habitat restoration, tree planting, redd counts, creel surveys, fish radio tagging, collecting wild fish scale samples, reconstitution of former logging roads, electroshock stream counts, as well as advocacy on conservation related bills and regulations in Oregon. Also, we have received grants from Trout Unlimited for conservation projects in the Necanicum watershed.
Notwithstanding our dedicated conservation efforts, we are also a social fishing club offering a full calendar of fishing outings, programs, and events that are of special interest to serious and novice anglers alike.
Our chapter meetings are held at the Multnomah Village Lucky Lab Brew Pub on the second Wednesday of each month. The meeting begins with a social get together at 6:30 pm, followed by a formal agenda at 7:00 pm, which more often than not includes a speaker. Keep in mind there are several Lucky Lab locations and we meet at the location in Multnomah Village.
