Concerned about deteriorating fishing conditions throughout the state, a passionate group of anglers founded California Trout in 1971. CalTrout was the nationís first statewide conservation group supported by trout and steelhead fishermen. They had a simple mission: to protect and restore wild trout and steelhead waters throughout California.
While California Trout is headquartered in San Francisco, we have five strategically placed Regional Offices throughout the state: Eastern Sierra, Mount Shasta, North Coast, Northern Sierra, Southern California.
Each office is staffed with knowledgeable conservationists who are:
1) Well-versed in local environmental, fish and water issues (along with the social, political and economic nuances surrounding them)
2) In close proximity to our on the ground, regional projects
3) Capable of leveraging their local knowledge and insight to assist with our Sacramento advocacy and policy work
4) Effective at building strong collaborative relationships with local partners to get work done
