The Lakeshore Chapter of Trout Unlimited is an all-volunteer organization that was founded in 1983 and serves the cold water fisheries of Kewanee, Calumet, Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties. With 180+ members, the LSTU organization has a rich history and is an active leader in the conservation community creating and caring for multi-use resource areas for future generations.
Lakeshore Trout Unlimited has resumed our stream restoration work after a two month COVID-19 interruption. Most of our normal activities like meetings and events are still on COVID hold but carefully working in pairs on the stream is moving ahead.
We had a good turnout for our June 13 workday on the Onion River, putting 40 man hours of work into habitat improvement. It is satisfying to see the instant and lasting impact that just a day's worth of work has on the stream. We also have a great time outdoors with like minded conservationists.
The July member meeting is cancelled due to COVID 19. But please join us for the July work day.
July work day is scheduled for July 11. This work day will focus on the Onion River section south of County U. We will meet at the parking area on Winooski Rd at 7:30 am. If you come later in the morning just follow the river south of U until you locate the group. You'll probably hear us before you see us. This section of The Onion has a lot of down trees in the water that need to be removed prior to the bank stabilization work that is needed on this section. We are following the National TU guidelines for COVID-19 thus are asking all to wear face covering during the work day. We will also have hand sanitizer and bleach wipes for our tools. Cold drinks will be provided but we ask that you bring your own lunch. Waders are suggested as much of the work is in the river but if you want to help but don't have waders, please come. We have a lot of work to do in the river and out so need all the help we can get. Work will go from 9:00 am to at least noon. Stay for as long as you can. If you have any questions or are interested in joining us please contact Myk Hranicka by calling 920 627 5779.
The chapter meets every third Tuesday of the month at 8th Street Ale Haus in Sheboygan, WI. We encourage anyone in the area who might have interest in joining to stop by and check us out!
The chapter meets every second Saturday of the month, weather permitting, for stream brushing, river improvements or any other special projects.
