Work Day

Central WI Trout Unlimited will be holding our 2nd Stream Conservation Workday event of 2024 on Saturday, June 15th on the Mecan River!

This is your chance, as members of Trout Unlimited, to see up close and personal the positive impact you can make on our local coldwater fisheries.  Working closely with our partners at the DNR, it’s also a great way to learn more about trout habitat, trout fishing, and conservation in general.  We will once again focus our conservation work on the beautiful Mecan River at the Ice Age Trail site just off 9th Ave., near the town of Coloma. Probably the most well-known trout stream in central WI (for good reason) the Mecan is an excellent example of the unique coldwater fisheries we have available to us in the Central Sands region and is considered a premiere trout fishing destination.

Stream Conservation Days will occur, weather permitting, on the 3rd Saturday of the month May through September from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon (we recommend getting there 15 min. prior if possible).  We start with coffee and donuts in the morning and end each day with a full lunch and cold beverages, all provided by CWTU volunteers.  You will need waders (preferably an older pair), wading boots, and work gloves.  Hats and sunglasses are also highly recommended.  All are welcome, and we encourage you to bring a friend. Come on out and have some fun!

We hope to see you there!  PLEASE RSVP TO BY JUNE 8TH, IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND.
