Join Trout Unlimited

Welcome to the Northwest Arkansas Chapter Trout Unlimited Website

Thank you for checking out our Chapter’s website. And thanks to all who participated in our online fundraising auction and sweepstakes in 2021 and watch for more events like these in 2022.

Unfortunately, we have decided to hold off on scheduling indoor, in-person events, and so we regret that our annual Conservation Banquet and Auction fundraiser will not be held in March. This is the third year in a row that this very popular and important fundraising event has not happened. Our priority has been to ensure the safety and health of all Trout Unlimited (TU) volunteers, members, staff, and supporters, and follow Covid guideline updates in the wake of the Omicron and Delta resurgence.

If you are interested in protection, restoration and conservation of our fishable waters, please join us, get involved.

Then about 10:30 a.m. we will regroup at the Dam Site Park parking lot and hand out assignments to teams for trash pickup. Trash bags will be provided but bring your own gloves. Following the clean-up, a hamburger lunch will be provided. For meal planning purposes preregistration is encouraged.
