Announcing Three Social Media Platforms

Clear Waters Board members Tom Sather and Jim Erickson head the social media committee, along with the huge help of chapter member Jesse Burgin of InkSignals Design and Printing.  He brings a wealth of social media knowledge and tremendous artistic and visual skills.  We are being intentional in our use of these social media platforms to connect and engage our Wisconsin Clear Waters Trout Unlimited chapter with cold water resources, the trout fishing community, and the local community and beyond. We’d love to share your original photos, images, flies, and content on social media, just send them to us at the email below and we’ll be sure to credit you.


Buffalo County Trout Stream Field Guide & Mapping

Buffalo County supports public fishing access easements on almost 12 miles of cold water streams through stream access easements that were donated by 24 landowners, and held by Buffalo County or the local Conservation Club.  Since 2009, many agencies, clubs, organizations, and landowners have been involved in cooperative projects to improve streams for fish and wildlife habitat, stabilize stream banks, and provide public access.  All of these streams are capable of supporting native reproducing brook trout and public access to these waters is allowed during the Wisconsin trout season.
