HOW does a $10 Donation to Trout Unlimited #698 sound for the chance to name your own White River rainbow, FOR your kids, grand kids or the love of your life.
We are raising 150 rainbow trout in our new Trout Unlimited coldwater tank at Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher to be released into the White River next year. Since we have been huge fans of the work our local TU chapter has done with Trout in the Classroom in local schools, we thought the Naming of The Trout project would be a fun way to raise money to help out.
There is no limit on the number of trout names you can buy, but each named trout is $10 apiece. We have 150 name cards to mark the name of the trout and the name of the donor. which will be displayed adjacent to the tank and posted below to recognize those who are helping the project and so those who the trout are named after can look on from far afield.
When spawning in the wild there can be a 92% loss of eggs, we are expecting a much higher success rate, but there will be attrition. Since this is a fundraiser for Trout Unlimited #698, there may be some hatchlings heading into the White River with more than one name.

Our local Trout Unlimited chapter started the Trout in the Classroom five years ago, led by our own Michael Schraeder, who had been inspired by the TiC program nationally, starting with one tank at Pinkston Middle School.
This winter there will be 8 tanks in schools from Calico Rock to Yellville, from first grade at Flippin to High School classes.
Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an environmental education program in which students in grades k-12 . . .
- raise trout from eggs to fry.
- monitor tank water quality.
- engage in stream habitat study.
- learn to appreciate water resources.
- begin to foster a conservation ethic.
- grow to understand ecosystems.
Most programs end the year by releasing their trout in a state-approved stream near the school or within a nearby watershed.
