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.
