Since the first Wild Trout Symposium in 1974, concerned anglers, biologists and fisheries managers have gathered to share their passion for wild trout. Wild Trout Symposium brings us all together in a world of changing environments, philosophies and politics. The Symposium welcomes your knowledge and fellowship as we work to sustain this precious resource for future generations.

Our mission is to provide a forum for professional wild trout biologists and fishery conservationists to interact, to get to know each other in an informal setting, and to be exposed to the latest wild trout status, science, technology and philosophy. These conferences equip participants to better preserve and restore this magnificent but declining resource.
