Get Involved in Steelhead Outcomes

Jake Crawford June 05, 2023

At Fly Water Travel, we are passionate anglers that share a deep connection to our Pacific Northwest rivers and their anadromous fish. Of all the species that inhabit our home waters, we confess to having a special fondness for steelhead.

Sadly, steelhead populations are struggling across much of their native range. We recognize that to continue having opportunities to pursue these fish; we must be more than anglers; we must also be advocates. 

At Fly Water Travel we have several key roles. The first is to connect anglers with appropriate fisheries and manage expectations on what constitutes a good day on the water. The second is to use our influence to steer our guests and friends towards the heavy lift required to preserve and protect the resources that fulfill us as individuals and anglers.

There are many ways to be involved. We'd like to invite you to look at the following organizations that support steelhead conservation and recovery, and we encourage you to support their essential work as generously as possible.
