We Fight for Fish

  • Puget Sound Anglers is very active in support of fish. Many of our members are active supporters of conservation and enhancement programs to improve survival of our fish runs. We also actively participate in stream restoration, net pen programs, hatchery operations and we have a substantial voice in Washington fish politics. We are actively involved with the Legislature, Governor's office, WDFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission which are vital to the long term survival of sports fishing in Washington State.

    We support Fish Northwest financially with proceeds from our salmon derby. The money we raise supports a lobbyist in Olympia who is doing a great job making the sports fishing issues known to the people in government who can make or break the future of fishing.
