The Five Rivers Chapter of Trout Unlimited is based in the Durango area of Southwest Colorado. We are blessed to have the blue-ribbon Animas River run right through our hometown and to live close to hundreds of miles of pristine wilderness streams, rivers and lakes.

     Our chapter takes seriously its mission of protecting our region's coldwater fisheries and watersheds. We have in our area a substantial number of streams that hold native cutthroat trout, and one of our main efforts is to protect these watersheds and to add even more habitat for this fragile species.
