Welcome, the Northwest Guide’s and Anglers Association (NWGAA) is seeking members to fulfill its’ mission and vision.
Professional Sport Fishing Guides, Charter Captains and Recreational Anglers participation is critical for the success of NWGAA.
If all you do is buy membership, we welcome you. You have helped more than you know. For the most part, you have no idea how much it helps. We look forward to working with such a group of anglers that can help get our mission accomplished! What is that mission? Fishing opportunity for everyone!
To protect, enhance, and promote healthy sport-fisheries and the ecosystems, which we all depend on in the Pacific Northwest.
“While recognizing the necessity for restrictions that promote conservation, it is important that we are not regulated out of our workplace and fisheries now and in the future.”
Work towards a positive relationship with fellow anglers, and fishery mangers in the quest for better fishing opportunities for everyone.
“Secure our experiences on Pacific Northwest waters by ensuring healthy and viable fisheries for our future and those who will come after us.”
Since 2011, we have witnessed the closure of 5 of the last 6 remaining wild fish fisheries on the North Oregon State Coast and 7 out of 10 wild fisheries in Washington State. Not to mention, limited sturgeon quotas and retention, limited salmon allocations and additional regulations have continued to erode away opportunity for sport anglers in the Pacific Northwest.
The Pacific Northwest has a tremendous amount of visitors from all over the world. We should be able to showcase the Pacific Northwest as it should be seen by all. That is to Experience the Pacific Northwest on the water!
