On Tuesday, June 23, at 11 a.m. ET, Trout Unlimited will unveil its new report titled, “State of the Trout,” the most comprehensive look at the health and viability of American trout and char populations ever compiled. Details of the report will be discussed on a media teleconference by Jack Williams, TU’s senior scientist and chief author of the report, and Chris Wood, TU’s president and CEO.
Trout and char across America are imperiled and face continuing threats to their long-term persistence. The report is perhaps the most extensive effort ever to detail the well-being of native trout in America. It examines the myriad threats facing our nation’s coldwater fish, and the impact those threats are having today on our prized trout populations from coast to coast. In addition, it lays out a roadmap for trout and char recovery in America, an ambitious plan that, if followed and supported by anglers, state and federal agencies and elected officials, can ensure trout will be a part of our children’s future.
