We are passionate anglers and river enthusiasts dedicated to restoring the Big Wood River to a world-class trout fishery.
Who we are.
Our Mission is to protect and restore the Big Wood River as a world-class trout stream by activating local pride.
Project Big Wood is a unique kind of non-profit: part public, part private, part local angler, and part government expert, that exists solely to restore, preserve and protect the Big Wood River.
In recent years the native trout population has seen a decline in size and numbers—a bellwether for the health of the river.
We are here to activate and cultivate resources to put the recommendations from many studies into a plan and a collective that will take action.
It’s our home water. Time to mend it.
Help us make a difference.
Project Big Wood is the structure for a collaborative approach to developing and prioritizing projects, action plans, and coordinated restoration work. Collaboration with our partners supports basin-wide strategies to enhance fishing access, restoration projects, and awareness of natural river processes.
Founded with support from Trout Unlimited and Wood River Land Trust, we are part of an ecosystem of agencies and organizations helping change The Big Wood River for the better.
