Our Work

Conservation Through Education, Recreation, and Advocacy


In order to protect fish and their habitats, the Northwest Steelheaders focus primarily on recreational angler-driven programs in education and advocacy. Our work is made possible by over 1,200 generous members and volunteers. ANWS is an independent angling association that prides itself on its ability to work well with other stakeholders: environmental groups, the sport fishing industry, natural resource agencies, and tribal interest groups. We understand that while we have some major differences, we all seek to ensure that there is a place to fish and fish to catch now and for future generations. As such, we are the leading nonprofit voice for anglers in the Pacific Northwest.
