Our Flyfishing show will take place on Feb. 1st and 2nd this year. We are partnering with the Black Canyon Outdoor Show will be in the same place. This is a new venture and we are looking to see how it works out. It’s a 2 day event so we need volunteers for both days. Sat. is a full day and Sunday is a half day. We will set up on Friday the Jan. 31st.
You can contact me if you can help on any of the days.
We have a full list of projects and events, articles from TU, Colorado River Basin, Western Anglers, minutes from the Dec. meeting, wonderful article from Gale Doudy and of course Fishing Time..

TU SPAM ALERT

Some Trout Unlimited members recently received an invoice from Platinum Publishing Service located in White City, Oregon, for renewal of TROUT magazine at a cost of $79.95. This is not a legitimate invoice from Trout Unlimited. Click here to view an example of the notice in question.

TU is in no way affiliated with Platinum Publishing. If you receive an invoice from Platinum Publishing for a renewal of your TROUT magazine, please disregard that invoice, but rest assured tu.org and TU's Woolly Bugger, WV, post office box are fully operational, secure and ready to handle your membership dues and contributions.

TROUT magazine is a benefit of TU membership and included in your membership renewal. As always, you may renew your TU membership via our official, secure website at www.tu.org. Or more directly at https://www.tumembership.org/member/renew. TU regular membership remains $35 per year.

We are not clear at this time how this company obtained mailing addresses for TU members, but we suspect they have been taken from fly fishing industry magazine lists that Platinum Publishing features on their website. We will be initiating legal notification to Platinum Publishing to immediately cease-and-desist this unauthorized activity of billing for TROUT magazine.

Thank you for your continued membership support.

Sincerely,

Bryan Moore
Vice President of Volunteer Operations

Colorado Basin Implementation Plan

This is the Facebook page for information on what is happening on the upper Colorado River.
Ken Neubecker, past CTU president is asking us to FRIEND this page. It is a great place to get information on what is happening on the Upper Colorado.
The actions taken on this river will at sometime have an impact on the Gunnison River.
We have people out there that want to take more water from the Gunnison and we need to be prepared.


This FB page is designed to ensure the stakeholders of the Colorado River Basin are fully informed of the development of the Colorado Basin Implementation Plan.

The Next Colorado Basin Roundtable Meeting is on Monday 12.30.13 @ 12 noon
Glenwood Springs Community Center
