President's Message

Welcome to the WestSlope Chapter of Trout Unlimited. We are a Chapter that gets things done.

WSCTU Mission Statement: 
To conserve, protect and restore Missoula’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds and to serve and expand the Missoula fly fishing community through outreach and programs to women, kids, students, and veterans so we can accomplish even more.

Accomplishing Our Mission:
The WSCTU accomplishes our mission through relationships with board members, chapter members, fly shops, local businesses, government agencies, conservation organizations and other partners. We raise money and put that to work in the Missoula area.

Building and Maintaining Relationships
We build and maintain relationships through board engagement, member programs, creating an inclusive environment, welcoming new members and groups, creating value and sharing our successes and challenges with other TU chapters in Montana and beyond.

In 2019, the Chapter contributed over $120,000 to fund a dozen conservation projects. Click here for all the details. If you have a project that you’d like WSCTU funding, please click here and fill out the form.

We host 6 meetings from November through April featuring top fly fishing personalities. Our meetings are free and open to the public and everyone is welcome. Please come and bring a friend. Check out our upcoming meetings here. If you are not a member of Trout Unlimited, free memberships are available at all meetings. Or sign up now at www.tu.org

Our annual banquet and auction is scheduled for February 29, 2020.  With over 150 silent auction items and 15 to 20 live auction items plus raffles and door prizes, this is a great event. Tickets will be available online in early January, 2020. Save the date.


If you are interested in serving on the board, helping out with any of our events or donating a item for our auction, please contact me at

Thank you for your support of our organization and mission.

Best Regards,

Mark Kuipers, President
