Our Conservation Partners page is for our readers to find different organizations dedicated to our streams and fisheries in the great state of Montana. Here we hope readers can find useful information and links to some organizations that are making change and helping our fishing community.

Backcountry Hunters and Anglers

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers seeks to ensure North America’s outdoor heritage of hunting and fishing in a natural setting, through education and work on behalf of wild public lands and waters.

Clark Fork Coalition 

Since 1985 the Clark Fork Coalition has worked to help heal and protect the vital waters of the Clark Fork basin. We organize and educate community members to learn about and care for the river, helping to make our waterways clean, healthy, and whole again. Our work is conducted by a staff of 14 people based in Missoula, Montana, with a satellite office at the CFC-managed working ranch in the Deer Lodge Valley. Our board of directors supplies guidance, governance, and oversight, with membership support delivered by 2,700 citizens from across the 14-million acre Clark Fork basin. We build diverse partnerships using a science-based, community-focused approach.

Montanans for Healthy Rivers

Montanans for Healthy Rivers works to keep western Montana’s rivers clean and free-flowing for future generations to enjoy. They are a coalition of Montanans – families, business owners, sportsmen, farmers, ranchers, agency officials, land trusts, and conservation organizations. They work to conserve Montana rivers for people, fish and wildlife, today and far into the future.

Trout Unlimited

Trout Unlimited was founded in 1964 and is the only statewide conservation and restoration organization for cold-water fisheries. They currently have approximately 3,900 members.

IFlyFishMontana is located in Missoula and we are members of the WestSlope Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

“The mission of our chapter is to protect, conserve and enhance cold-water streams in the Missoula area and provide fly-fishing programs and education,” Mark Kuipers, president of the WestSlope Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Right now they are working on installing fish screens on irrigation ditches up and down Rattlsnake Creek. Please take some time to look over their website WestSlope Chapter Trout Unlimited.

There are also 12 other chapters in the state of Montana. You can find them here: Montana Trout Unlimited
