We encourage you to reach out to your legislators with questions and concerns about the bills below, and whichever bills you are personally watching, throughout the session. There are a lot of relatively new legislators in both the House and Senate who may not know the importance of sportfishing to the region, or the struggles of salmon and steelhead, making advocating for the needs of the angling community especially important.

Having a voice and connecting with legislators about concerns is important and we're here to help. Please contact us if you have questions or concerns before, during or after you engage with your elected officials at


If you have any questions about our legislative priorities, or if you're interested in submitting testimony, please contact Tamsin Fleming at
