Vanguard Chapter, Trout Unlimited

Welcome From Larry Walla, President Vanguard Chapter

The mission of Michigan Trout Unlimited is to conserve, protect and restore (CPR) Michigan’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.

Vanguard Chapter of Trout Unlimited works to accomplish this mission through our in stream conservation projects, education programs, and financial support.

In addition, we promote increasing the coldwater fishing opportunities throughout Michigan with particular emphasis on our home waters of Paint Creek and the Clinton River.

Our network of dedicated member volunteers, in partnership with other TU chapters, the Clinton River Watershed Council, The Upper Black River Council, Michigan DNR, and numerous other conservation, wildlife & fisheries organizations, have accomplished significant improvements in coldwater fisheries and watersheds throughout the State of Michigan with particular emphasis on SE Michigan. We continue this work in our commitment to accomplishing our mission.

We invite you to join us on our mission. We promise you won’t be sorry!

P.S. We also do a lot of fishing on some great waters for some great fish! Come share the fun with Vanguard Chapter.
