Governor Jared Polis declaring October 15 as Colorado Trout Unlimited Day in Colorado! This was done in celebration of CTU’s 50th anniversary.

On October 15, 2019, over 200 people gathered in downtown Denver for a celebration of rivers, 50 years of Colorado Trout Unlimited, and fly fishing films. The event was a collaboration between CTU, Trouts Fly Fishing, and Avanti Food & Beverage. The evening included a premiere of CTU's 50th Anniversary Film, a proclamation by Governor Jared Polis, a speech by Chris Wood, CEO of Trout Unlimited and the 2nd Annual Throwback Fly Fishing Film Fest by Trouts Fly Fishing.

The evening helped raise funds for Colorado Trout Unlimited through a silent auction and raffle. Beer was provided by Upslope Brewing and appetizers from Avanti Food & Beverage. Thank you to everyone who attended and those who helped make this possible. October 15 is now known as Colorado Trout Unlimited Day in Colorado!
