Trout in the Classroom

The Ted Trueblood Chapter of Trout Unlimited initiated its Trout in the Classroom Program during the 1998-1999 school year at Riverside Elementary in Boise. Fourth Grade Teacher Carrie Prange was our first teacher involved in the program.


By 2008 Trout in the Classroom had grown across Southwest Idaho with Ted Trueblood Chapter involvement in 30 classrooms By 2022 we are now at more than 50 schools in southwest Idaho and in a sustained partnership with Idaho Fish and Game for this program!.

Here is a look back at the early years of this program in the video below.
