2022 – 2023 Trout Unlimited Annual Report


Chris Wood, President and CEO of Trout Unlimited

When I reflect on the past year at Trout Unlimited (TU), I am both humbled and immensely proud of the day-to-day stories that we are creating together in communities across America. So many of you have stepped forward to invest your time, hard-earned dollars, resources, and passion into caring for and recovering the lands and waters that sustain this great nation.  

From streambeds to legislatures, we have linked arms and the results are astonishing. This is TU’s highest number of river and stream miles restored and reconnected in a year. Which means the waters in more of the places we love are running clean, cold, and fishable. 

I cannot overstate the power of your generosity. Your support is helping to unlock once-in-a-generation public investments. Thank you for partnering with us to build the capacity and tools needed to leverage the highest conservation outcomes as we take on hundreds of boots-on-the-ground projects enabled by these partnerships.  

With an exciting and unprecedented expansion in sight, TU is doubling down to invest in our systems and people. This is the only way we will harness the scale of the need and opportunity ahead of us to blend private and public funding and deliver on-the-ground, lasting impact.  

It is not an exaggeration to say that what we do together now will determine what we are able to recover tomorrow. We must leave a legacy of cold, free-flowing, healthy waters to the next generation. I believe we can, and we will. 

Thank you, again, for all you do. We are in this together.  

Stay in touch, 

President and CEO
