COVID-19 (Coronavirus Update)

COVID-19 “Coronavirus Update”


Due to the ongoing pandemic, Fox Valley TU has placed all in-person activities on hold until further notice.  Habitat work days, the April Angling Adventure, the Fishing Day for those with Disabilities have been removed from our website calendar.  As the situation changes, we will add events back to the calendar and to our Facebook page so you will know when events are back on schedule.


In the meantime, please stay healthy and safe and perhaps practice some social distancing on one of many amazing trout streams in Wisconsin or some other locale……

Thank you – FVTU Officers and Board

Donation Options:

FVTU is a nonprofit organization whose mission is conserving, protecting and restoring our country’s cold-water fisheries and their watersheds.  With our volunteer leaders there is minimal organization expense, and all of our proceeds are invested in the sport of fishing.  Most goes to fishery improvement with a smaller amount invested in education and experiences for youth and the disabled.  Thank you for considering support of our work.
