2013 Anglers Fund Fishing Trips

In addition to the satisfaction of giving back to our rivers, members of the Anglers Fund also get access to exclusive fishing trips that showcase rivers that are priorities to protect and restore. Below are 2013 trips – most of them hosted by a staff member who has worked to protect or restore that river. The trips give you the chance to spend individual time with our conservation staff and learn more about how your support is benefiting fish habitat and fishing.

Each Anglers Fund member is invited to bring one paying, non-member spouse or guest, although we hope that all attendees will join as members of the Anglers Fund. Trip size will be kept small to allow for personal interaction with our conservation staff. Trips will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. If possible, we will add slots to support additional member interest.

The timing, itinerary, and costs of each trip will be finalized after receiving input from current Anglers Fund members. Trips will include dinner discussions on American Rivers’ conservation work that improves fish habitat and fishing where possible, with local details.

Additional trips may be offered during the year, and we welcome members’ requests for specific trips. Contact Steve White to share which trips you are interested in[email protected], phone at 919-720-2901, or via mail to Mr. Steve White; American Rivers Anglers Fund; 331 W. Main Street, Suite 304; Durham NC 27701.
