    Washington Fishing Related Organizations
    • American Rivers: Since 1973, American Rivers has been dedicated to protecting and restoring healthy, natural rivers and the variety of life they sustain for people, fish and wildlife.

    • Coastal Conservation Association Pacific Northwest: The CCA-PNW is an advocacy group for salmon, steelhead, and our other Northwest fish. Our job is to give voice to this precious resource that cannot defend itself against destruction. Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) is a non-profit organization comprised of 17 coastal state chapters spanning the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific coasts. CCA's strength is drawn from the tens of thousands of recreational saltwater anglers who make up its membership. From South Texas to the upper reaches of Maine, CCA's grassroots influence is felt through state capitals, U.S. Congress and, most importantly, in the conservation and restoration of our coastal marine resources.

    • Hoh River Trust: The Hoh River Trust was formed to own and manage river lands along the Hoh River on Washington's Olympic Peninsula with an objective to conserve, restore, and enhance these lands for the benefit of the dependent species, including healthy salmon and steelhead runs along with listed species under the Endangered Species Act including marbled murrelet, spotted owl, bald eagle, and bull trout. Within this mission we will also pursue community and educational outreach. This will be a legacy that not only benefits the targeted ecosystem and local community, but contributes to a broader understanding of the viability of healthy river systems elsewhere.

    • Native Fish Society: The Native Fish Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1995. Our goal is the conservation, preservation and restoration of wild fish in the Pacific Northwest. We work to establish effective fish management policies based on the latest scientific research, and we encourage the public to get involved in this process.

    • Pierce County Stream Team: Spend a morning planting trees along a stream, build livestock exclusion fencing or other projects focused on water quality and fish habitat.

    • Puget Soundkeeper Alliance: Water Quality Action Group.

    • Save our Wild Salmon: Click on the link to visit the Campaign's Alert Page and send a quick email to your elected leaders to show your support for restoring an imperiled National Treasure: wild Snake River salmon in the Pacific Northwest.

    • Shared Strategy for Puget Sound Salmon: The Shared Strategy is a groundbreaking collaborative initiative by Puget Sound communities to protect and restore salmon runs.

    • The Stilly-Snohomish Fisheries Enhancement Task Force: The mission of the Task Force is to ensure the future of salmon in the Stillaguamish and Snohomish watersheds, a combined land area of more than 2,400 square miles. Since its beginning in 1990, the Task Force has directed its resources and energy to the challenge of developing community partnerships and strategies to improve and restore the recreational and commercial fisheries of the Pacific Northwest.

    • The Wild Steelhead Coalition: The Wild Steelhead Coalition (WSC) is a new organization dedicated to increasing the return of wild steelhead to the waters and rivers of the Pacific Northwest.

    • Washington Trail Blazers: The Trail Blazers were formed in 1933 and have been dedicated to "better alpine fishing" ever since. The club works as volunteers for the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife backpacking trout fry into Washington's mountain lakes for the angling public to enjoy.

    • Washington Water Trust: Washington Water Trust restores river and stream flows to help sustain the fisheries, agriculture, water quality and recreational resources vital to everyone. We work hand-in-hand with many diverse partners to acquire water rights through innovative solutions including voluntary purchases, leases, gifts and transfers. We also work to create a greater understanding of the water rights marketplace and the importance of restoring stream flows to the future we all share.

    • Wild Fish Conservancy: Formally Washington Trout, Wild Fish Conservancy is a nonprofit science-based organization formed in 1989 to preserve, protect and restore Washington's wild fish and their habitats.
