From the very beginning, the Northwest Steelheaders have been at the forefront of angling advocacy in the Pacific Northwest. Our online fundraising auction, Reeling in the Year, launches Tuesday November 15th, and is an opportunity to support our work advocating for accessible abundant fisheries and angling programs to individuals all over Oregon and Southwest Washington. It goes without saying that our accomplishments wouldn't be possible without your continued contributions.

Moving forward, we will continue to build on this year’s accomplishments to bring ample fishing opportunities to the Northwest, and aim to bring further inclusivity to fishing. Through supporters like you and our business sponsors, we can build off our success and carry on fighting for lasting protections of salmon and steelhead.

The Steelheaders are investing in a future of full-length fishing seasons, increased bag limits, and angling opportunities for everyone through all of our initiatives!

We hope you’ll join us as we “Reel in the Year” through our Virtual Auction, registration opens November 7th and bidding will open on Tuesday, November 15th. Please mark your calendars, and get ready for the most exciting way to support the Steelheaders work!
