Project Go Trout Fund 2020

 Last Spring the Oconto River Watershed Chapter of Trout Unlimited partnered with the Breed Sportsman’s Club, Kelly Lake Sportsman’s Club, Oconto County Sportsman’s Alliance, Suring Sportsman’s Club, and Underhill Sportsman’s Club to fund trout stocking in the main Oconto River. In addition, several individuals also contributed to the project. Even with the high water last year, many area fishermen reported catching some nice trout from Suring south to State Hwy 32. It was nice to see more fishing on river than previous years. This is the Class 2 section of river. The TU Partnership stocked over 1,100 (11—13) inch Brown and Rainbow trout.

  With the success of last year, Project Go Trout Fund 2020 is our focus to raise funds to do another stocking event this year. The stocking would occur when the spring weather allows a truck to reach all stocking sites at public landings at Suring and South continuing downstream at landings in Hintz, Underhill and Pulcifer. The Chapter has started the fund with $1,000 seed money. Donations can be mailed to Chapter address, P.O. Box 252, Gillett, WI 54124. Please note on your check as funds for “trout stocking”.
