Who we are.


Out mission is to reverse the decline of the Big Wood River—as a voice of the trout—through data collection, education, watershed restoration, policy advocacy, and 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.
