Our Mission

“The purpose of the Chapter shall be to conserve, protect and restore cold-water fisheries and their watersheds in Michigan’s Western Upper Peninsula.”

VISION - CCCTU envisions coldwater sport fisheries of self-sustaining wild, native fish stocks prospering, in restored and maintained habitats within Western Upper Peninsula lakes and streams.


  • CCCTU will support scientific research of coldwater fish and their aquatic environments which focuses on the Lake Superior basin in general and Michigan's Western Upper Peninsula specifically.
  • CCCTU will undertake restoration and rehabilitation projects which repair, protect, and enhance trout habitat on inland lakes and streams of watersheds located in Michigan's Western Upper Peninsula.
  • CCCTU will support and conduct educational and informational outreach activities for its members and the general public so as to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of fishing, and the conservation of coldwater fisheries.
  • CCCTU will seek out partnerships with federal, state, local and tribal agencies as well as non-governmental organizations which can assist it in carrying out its mission.
