High Road or Slippery Slope?
According to this article on New West, Trout Unlimited is considering a resolution to drop their involvement in stream access issues.
"A proposed TU resolution states: “Involvement in stream access disputes is divisive and a distraction from the mission. ….The proposed amendments would prohibit TU involvement or participation in disputes that pit claims of public stream access against claims of private property rights.” "
Knowing that this issue is of major interest to fly fishers across the nation, we contacted Steve Moyer, Trout Unlimited's Vice President for Government Affairs and Volunteer Operations for a comment. Mr. Moyer let us know that TU's Trustees are "actively considering the matter" and that a decision could be reached as early as next week. He has graciously consented to an interview with FlyfishMagazine once the decision has been reached.
