About Us

Our Mission

The Trout Unlimited mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America’s trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds.

TU accomplishes this mission on local, state and national levels with an extensive and dedicated volunteer network. The organization has over 125,000 volunteers in 500 chapters nationwide to keep them active and involved in conservation issues.

The Candlewood Valley Chapter supports TU’s mission by doing local projects for stream and river conservation and restoration. The chapter also plays an active role in our communities educating the public both in conservation and fishing interests. Our members enjoy active camaraderie in these projects, along with joint fishing activities throughout the year. CVTU offers: master classes, fishing trips, youth education, and much more.

We welcome new members. Chapter meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Miry Brook Firehouse in Danbury.

Youth Education at the Candlewood Valley Chapter

The Candlewood Valley Chapter has long has a strong conservation mindset completing many projects throughout our area to improve trout habitat. But we also recognize that a big part of this sport’s future and the future of trout will be dependent upon the next generation of fly fisher persons.

With that in mind, the chapter has recently focused its energies on increasing awareness of cold water conservation issues among young people as well as introducing them to the sport of fly fishing. We do this through three programs: Trout in the Classroom, Youth Education Day and our Youth Fly Fishing School
