While it is rare for a watershed located in such a highly developed urban area to have any cold water recreational resources, we are fortunate to have both Paint Creek and sections of the Clinton River which are home to fantastic trout fisheries.
Our chapter’s mission is to restore and protect cold water fisheries and their watersheds, ensuring our river environments remain healthy for wild and native fish, and for future fishing generations to enjoy. Our philosophy is based on these three words: enjoyment, environment and education. Through the various activities hosted by our chapter we believe that we offer our members outstanding opportunities to promote a sense of stewardship and become actively engaged in the improvement of our cold water resources.
Annual Conservation Banquet
Each year the Clinton Valley Chapter hosts a fantastic event for our members to provide both a fun night out for our members and an opportunity to raise the funds needed to complete the various projects we have scheduled for the year.
This event is loaded with tons of raffles and games to ensure that everyone in attendance has a great time with the opportunity to go home with a great prize or two. From fishing equipment, guide trips, artwork, various gift card packages and other general interest items; there is something for everyone at our annual banquet
CVTU Conservation Committee
The Clinton Valley Chapter has a history of doing outstanding work on our local cold water fishery, Paint Creek, and continues to build upon the impact we have on our local waters each and every year. Our dedicated group of Clinton Valley volunteers has completed several angler access projects, streambank plantings, woody debris management projects and river clean-ups in recent years.
The CVTU Conservation Committee works hard to keep a busy schedule each and every year to help continue improving our local cold water recreational opportunities. Volunteers are always welcome and encouraged to help CVTU make a significant impact on the resources we cherish.
While working towards engaging our chapter members, the CVTU Events Committee schedules several different events each and every year. These events include our monthly chapter membership meetings, various fishing outings and a multi chapter Holiday Social.
In 2017 the CVTU Events Committee will be expanding our schedule of events in hopes of offering a more diverse array of activities for our members to take part in. Our members are encouraged to participate in both the planning and the fun involved in all of our activities.
