This Program is supported by private donations from local citizens that share a common purpose of preserving Northern Nevada fisheries. We are very fortunate that in 2006 Kroening family provided a generous charitable gift to the Sagebrush Chapter of Trout Unlimited to start this program & promote the principles of Trout Unlimited in the State of Nevada.
