  1. Suction Dredge Mining Reform in Washington State
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/suction-dredge-mining-reform-in-washington-state

    TU is working hard to address a serious problem impacting Washington’s watersheds and threatening the health of our native fish populations: unregulated suction dredge mining and other forms of motorized mineral prospecting.

    All streams in Washington are currently open to suction dredging, including designated Critical Habitat for threatened and endangered salmon, steelhead, and bull trout. The “Gold and Fish” regulations fail to protect our native fish.
  2. California Coastal Streamflow Stewardship Project

    Goals

    Across much of California’s north and central coast, lack of streamflow is the single largest factor holding back the recovery of salmon and steelhead. The region’s climate is dominated by a wet season and a dry season, with 90% of the precipitation falling between November and April.

  5. Securing Native Cutthroat Trout in Wheeler Creek
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/securing-native-cutthroat-trout-in-wheeler-creek

    Goals

    The goal of the project was to prevent invasion of nonnative trout into waters occupied by a genetically pure population of native Colorado River Cutthroat Trout in Wheeler Creek.

    Goals

    Hahns Peak Lake, a small, serene lake tucked into the mountains of northern Routt County, Colorado, offers a beautiful place to camp, hike and fish for native cutthroats and rainbows. TU's goal at the lake is to increase angling opportunities for youth and special needs recreationists.

  7. Roaring Creek Flow Restoration Project
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/roaring-creek-flow-restoration-project

    Goals

    Roaring Creek is a critical perennial tributary in the Lower Entiat River, Upper Columbia Sub-Basin, in Washington. Trout Unlimited aims to improve production of listed steelhead and bull trout in the Entiat basin, and the Roaring Creek Project has multiple objectives to further this goal.

  8. Methow Valley Irrigation System Upgrade
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/methow-valley-irrigation-system-upgrade

    Goals

    Trout Unlimited is constructing a complete irrigation system upgrade with the goal of increasing anadromous and resident fish populations in the Twisp and Methow Rivers of central Washington State.

  9. Lemhi Push-Up Dam Removal
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/lemhi-push-up-dam-removal

    Goals

    TU's goal is to remove a channel-wide push-up diversion dam on the Lemhi River and replace it with an electric pump pressurized system to deliver 1.1  cfs.

  10. Mill Creek Reconnect and Rehab Project
    https://koszailin.tu.org/tu-projects/mill-creek-reconnect-and-rehab-project

    Goals

    TU's goals is to reconnect Mill Creek to Big Creek, providing an additional 2 cfs base flow and 2,000 feet of reconstructed channel habitat for native fish, which are threatened by lack of healthy flows, sediment transport and refuge areas.
