Wilderness Waters featured at January 21 BRTU Meeting

A reminder about the January 21 meeting of Bitterroot Trout Unlimited that will feature Zack Porter from the Montana Wilderness Association.

The critical role of wild lands in Montana’s trout fisheries
is inescapable, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the Bitterroot. All of our headwaters arise in wilderness areas, and as the climate changes, these wilderness streams and lakes may prove to the best stronghold and refugia for native trout species like cutthroat and bull trout. Plus, wilderness fishing is usually devoid of the madding crowd and can be spectacular fun.
The Montana Wilderness Association has been working to promote and protect wilderness waters for decades, and is one of BRTU’s most enduring partners in conservation. MWA staffer Zack Porter will present a program about wilderness waters and wilderness fishing, highlighting some of our local streams and lakes. He will also give an update on some of the issues that are threatening our wilderness areas and how MWA is working state wide to address these issues. If you care about native fish and the future of native trout fisheries, you don’t want to miss this program.

The meeting will start at 7:00 pm at the Hamilton Elks Club, 203 State Street in Hamilton. There is no charge for admission and the public is invited to attend.

And, remember! We will be having dinner with Zach at Spice of Life at 5:00 pm before the meeting. Long-time TU supporter Karen Suennen will be donating 10% of the proceeds to our club. So please come join us for dinner.
