Ted Trueblood

The Ted Trueblood Chapter of Trout Unlimited was founded in 1991. Our chapter covers eight counties in southwest Idaho from Weiser to Glenns Ferry, and includes the large population center of Ada and Canyon counties. We have nearly 1,000 current members in the chapter. We are named for the great conservationist and outdoor writer Ted Trueblood.

Trout Unlimited’s mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America’s trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds.

TU accomplishes this mission on local, state and national levels with an extensive and dedicated volunteer network.

TU’s national office, based just outside of Washington, D.C., and its regional offices employ professionals who testify before Congress, publish a quarterly magazine, intervene in federal legal proceedings, and work with the organization’s 125,000 volunteers in 500 chapters nationwide to keep them active and involved in conservation issues.

The Ted Trueblood Chapter was the recipient of the Golden Trout Award in 2002, Trout Unlimited’s annual recognition of the most outstanding TU chapter in the country. The award was based on our numerous conservation project initiatives, our support of youth education like the Boise Valley Wooly Buggers and the trout in the classroom program.

In 2011 The Chapter received the Silver Trout Award for second most outstanding chapter. Much of this was recognition for the work on the South Fork of the Boise River wild trout fishery.
