Central Wisconsin Chapter of Trout Unlimited

Conserving, Protecting and Restoring Coldwater Fisheries


CWTU work days are scheduled during the spring, summer and fall.  Dennis Drazkowski is our work day coordinator.  If you would like to receive additional information regarding a work day, please call Dennis at 1-262-409-0558 or email him at ddrazkowski@wi.rr.com.

Workdays are an important activity of CWTU.  This is an opportunity to help make stream improvements and also an opportunity to get to know more about area streams.  Stream improvements help provide cover and spawning habitat that results in increased trout populations.  Workdays are open to both members and non-members and you can come and observe as well as assist in the workday activities. 

Electro-shocking is often done before and after doing major stream restoration work to assess the number and size of fish present.  We know from the work we have done and the results of the electro-shocking that our work has resulted in increased trout populations. Any changes in location and activity, cancellations due to weather or high stream flows, or other information will be posted here.

All workdays begin with a meeting at 7:45am to discuss the work planned, organization of volunteers and materials, instructions, a nature lesson, and light breakfast. Work will begin at 8:00am.

August 20th. Workday Information
The August 20th Workday will take place on West Branch of the White River, in Waushara County, about 2 miles west of Wautoma.

If you do park on the north side of Hwy 21, please be careful when crossing Hwy 21 to the worksite.  
Plan to arrive by 7:45am.  Coffee and donuts will be available.  We will work from 8:00am to about noon, and then have lunch.  A porta potty will be on site.  You will need waders (preferably an older pair), gloves that can get wet, lawn chair for lunch, insect spray, and sunscreen.  Please RVSP to Dennis Drazkowski if you plan to attend so we can get an accurate count for lunch (262-409-0558) or ddrazkowski@wi.rr.com.

Directions: Take Hwy 21 west from the city of Wautoma about 2 miles. At Cty. Hwy Y continue west .01miles to the worksite which will be on the south side of Hwy 21.  There will be parking on lots on both sides of Hwy 21, but do not park on Hwy 21.  Watch for the white and black TU signs.
