The Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers program is a network of over 100 TU-affiliated college conservation focused fishing clubs around the nation. As the capstone of the Trout Unlimited Headwaters Youth Program, these clubs seek to engage current and fly fishers-to-be on their campuses nationwide.
Each club is a division of their respective colleges student organization office that are more broadly affiliated with Trout Unlimited.
Through their affiliation with Trout Unlimited, clubs plan and participate in a series of events/initiatives in conjunction with their local TU chapter (more details on "the 5 Rivers Page"). Upon completion, club members earn pro deals on equipment to reduce the prohibitive cost curve of entering the sport.
