Welcome to the Paul H. Young Chapter, Trout Unlimited
Named after Paul H. Young, a cane rod builder and fly-fishing pioneer from Detroit, the Paul H. Young Chapter of Trout Unlimited is a non-profit grassroots organization in metropolitan Detroit whose mission is to conserve, protect and enhance the watersheds which support wild trout and salmon.
Founded on the banks of the Au Sable River in 1959, Trout Unlimited has grown into a widely influential organization of over 152,000 members, nationwide. The originators of Trout Unlimited knew that what is good for trout is ultimately good for man, and that cold, clean running water is the lifeblood of our planet.
In Michigan, many of our natural resources have been damaged by sand erosion, hydroelectric dams, Antrim oil development, and urban expansion.
Consequently, a legion of the 1100 members of the Paul H. Young Chapter of Trout Unlimited have dedicated countless hours of work on stream projects to help sustain the fragile ecological balance upon which the health of fish depend.
If the present damage to our environment remains unchecked, future generations may never know the pleasure that comes from fishing for trout and salmon at the beautiful places in which they live.
