What is the Wild Trout Symposium?

The Wild Trout Symposium brings together a broad and diverse audience of non-profit conservation groups, media representatives, educators, anglers, fishing guides, government entities, and business interests associated with trout fisheries to exchange technical information and viewpoints on wild trout management and related public policy. Held every three years, each symposium has led to innovative approaches to wild trout management.

Wild Trout XIII offers a unique forum for professionals and anglers to interact, where participants are exposed to the latest wild trout science, technology and philosophies. This conference will equip participants to better manage, preserve, and restore these significant but declining resources.
