Veteran and First Responder Trial Membership - Update!


TU has just expanded this benefit to ALL Essential Workers! 


Trout Unlimited’s Veterans Service Partnership is a nationwide effort initiated by TU in 2011 to bring the healing power of the water to those active duty servicemen and women, reservists, veterans, and military families who have served our nation so boldly.


As an effort to both recognize and assist those First Responders who are selflessly bearing the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trout Unlimited’s Veterans Service Partnership is pleased to announce that effective immediately it is extending to members of the medical, fire service, and law enforcement communities the same free 1-year introductory membership to Trout Unlimited that we offer our military veterans.

or email the TU President / CEO at


The free 1-year introductory membership for new-to-Trout-Unlimited Veterans and First Responders has all the benefits of a paid membership. Those who join will also receive a less tangible benefit, the pleasure of knowing they're part of a growing community of individuals who enjoy angling and want to keep America's rivers cold, clean and fishable.


Together, we can make our trout and salmon fisheries healthier, for us and the next generation. Please join us in this important work.


Thank you for all you do!
