Who are we, what we do
Welcome to the Lee Wulff Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Initiated in 1984, we are committed to the conservation, protection and restoration of North America’s cold water fisheries and their watersheds.
Our monthly meetings include a casual dinner and social time, followed by a presentation by a guest speaker. Speakers include fly-fishing expert guides, authors, aquatic entomology and invasive species specialists, our own talented members and many others.
We offer group outings to the Wisconsin Driftless area, The AuSable River in Grayling Michigan, and the Pere Marquette River in Michigan, and participate with Wisconsin area TU chapters to help with conservation projects and stream restorations. Our volunteer members work with local schools to teach Trout in the Classroom as well as our youth program. We provide weekly fly tying sessions during the winter months.
We welcome all ages and genders, please come and join us in a casual, friendly and welcoming setting.

We are a social group that gives back
Starting in 2016 Lee Wulff Chapter began building and installing stiles in the Wisconsin Driftless area.
Trout In the classroom
Trout in the Classroom is a program developed by Trout Unlimited to teach students about trout and their habitats as well as to learn about conservation & ecosystems. Our chapter works with various local schools each year. Students have the opportunity to help raise trout from eggs to small fry, and then participate in the release of the trout in the spring.
In partnership with Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation and LL Bean, our Chapter created the award winning Fishin’ So Fly program for local students. This unique program brings local special education students together with Lee Wulff TU members to create valuable and life-changing experiences to both the children and members. Fishin’ So Fly includes 4 weekly fly fishing instruction and conservation clinics and a day trip to the streams of the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin during the month of May. Consider sharing your love of fly fishing with children who would otherwise, never have this opportunity. Consider volunteering today….you will be hooked on this rewarding experience!
