“Dream Montana Trip” Fundraiser
Fox Valley Trout Unlimited Fundraiser to support Trout Stream Conservation
Sweepstakes Ticket Sales available until July 31st @ 11:59PM EST
Drawing Date: August 4th at 11:59pm EST
Fox Valley Trout Unlimited (FVTU) is participating in an online fundraiser to support conservation and habitat work in the Central Sands Area of Wisconsin. This work is the foundation of Trout Unlimited and is the core of our mission and vision as an organization. Through a partnership with three other TU Chapters (Central Wisconsin, Frank Hornberg, and Shawpaca) we will be pooling our fundraising efforts to maximize the positive impact we can have on area trout streams.
This fundraiser raises the funds necessary to sponsor DNR LTE work crews. Annually, the 4 chapters meet with the DNR to develop a work plan for the Central region of Wisconsin. In addition to financially supporting the DNR work crews, our chapters participate in monthly habitat workdays on the third Saturday of every month from May until September. Details of our workdays can be found on FVTU’s website on the Events Calendar page (www.foxvalleytu.org). Some of the rivers impacted by our efforts are the Mecan River, Chaffee Creek, Wedde Creek, Willow Creek, Pine River, Waupaca River, West Branch of the White River, Radley Creek, North and South Branch of Little Wolf River, and many others.

This prize package is valued at $11,000 and is for 4 Anglers for 3 Days & 4 nights at North Fork Crossing Lodge on the Blackfoot River
Experience crisp, bright mornings that dissolve into warm, lingering Montana afternoons. It’s the fly-fishing experience that inspired Norman Maclean’s acclaimed book: A River Runs Through It. Lush fishing, meandering waters and seasoned guides.
North Fork Crossing Lodge itself is perched on the North Fork of the Blackfoot River just outside the town of Ovando, Montana. We feature a signature mix of intimate outdoor experience and comfort. Our unique tent cabins were designed to provide the comforts of a full service lodge without losing the intimate connection to nature that camping can provide. Replete with wood floors, custom feather beds, heat, electricity and a private bathhouse.
The main lodge features a lounge and dining area overlooking five artesian-fed stocked ponds, perfect for evening fishing. Surrounded by the Blackfoot River Valley, remote and lush with large populations of native West Slope Cutthroat Trout.
Eventgroove and Pro Outfitters are donating three days and three nights for four guests in Fall of 2023 or the 2024 season based on availability at this Orvis Endorsed lodge on the beautiful Blackfoot River.
Trip includes guided fishing and meals for all three days. Trip does not include airfare, ground transportation, licenses or gratuities.
