Trout Unlimited plans 'party' for Fraser River

Sky-Hi Daily News Imagine the Fraser River Valley without a river running through it. Imagine the Fraser River without trout swimming in it. Imagine a way to ensure that we always have our rivers and our trout. The Colorado River Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited is holding "A Party for the River" on Saturday, July 18, an invitation to help them help the rivers.

TU will host its annual banquet at Gasthaus Eichler in Winter Park with cocktails beginning at 5:30 p.m., Silent Auction at 6 p.m., and dinner at 7:30 p.m. The $35 tickets can be purchased at Winter Park Optical in the Safeway Center, at Mo' Henry's on Hwy. 40 in Fraser, or by calling 726-5652.

Don't think of this as a party just for fishermen — think of it as a party for people who care about our Grand County environment. The mission of Trout Unlimited is to conserve, protect, restore and enjoy our cold water fisheries and the watersheds upon which they depend, including the already endangered Upper Colorado and the Fraser River.
