Who are we, what we do
Welcome to the Lee Wulff Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Initiated in 1984, we are committed to the conservation, protection and restoration of North America’s cold water fisheries and their watersheds.
Our monthly meetings include a casual dinner and social time, followed by a presentation by a guest speaker. Speakers include fly-fishing expert guides, authors, aquatic entomology and invasive species specialists, our own talented members and many others.
We offer group outings to the Wisconsin Driftless area, The AuSable River in Grayling Michigan, and the Pere Marquette River in Michigan, and participate with Wisconsin area TU chapters to help with conservation projects and stream restorations. Our volunteer members work with local schools to teach Trout in the Classroom as well as our youth program. We provide weekly fly tying sessions at Cabela’s, Hoffman Estates.
We welcome women fly fishers, contact Meg Gallagher, Chapter President. Please come and join us in a casual, friendly and welcoming setting.
Trout In the classroom
Trout in the Classroom is a program developed by TU to teach students about trout and their habitats as well as to learn about conservation & ecosystems. Our chapter works with Dundee Middle school each year. The students have the opportunity to help raise trout from eggs to small fry, and then participate in the release of the trout in the spring.
In partnership with the Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association (NISRA), Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation and LL Bean, our Chapter created the award winning Fishin’ So Fly program for at-risk youth. This unique program brings local needy children together with Lee Wulff TU members to create valuable and life-changing experiences to both the children and members. Fishin’ So Fly includes 4 weekly fly fishing instruction and conservation clinics and a day trip to the streams of the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin during the month of May. Consider sharing your love of fly fishing with children who would otherwise, never have this opportunity. Consider volunteering today….you will be hooked on this rewarding experience!
Women's Beginner Clinic
This year we are going to be sponsoring one lucky woman candidate to attend the South West WI Trout Unlimited Women’s Beginner Clinic in June. As part of our growth we want to see more women getting involved in the sport, and this gives one of our women members , spouses of members, or immediate family of a member (daughter or granddaughter) a chance to attend this fabulous clinic taught by women for women.
