About Our Auction
Northwest Steelheaders has come a long way over the past 60 years, and this year, we’re excited to usher in a new era of growth and change. Our theme, Crossing Boundaries, represents our fearless and resolute commitment to deconstruct the physical, social, and economic barriers that recreational angling faces in 2020… and we’re not just dipping our toes in, we’re diving headlong into the whitewater!
From September 26th through October 4th, our fundraising efforts will support our mission to activate a conservation ethic in both novice and seasoned anglers. This starts with our work to provide environmental education to kids by overcoming financial obstacles for schools and families. We aim to do this by extending the reach of our Fish Eggs to Fry program, offering Family Fish Camp scholarships in increasing numbers and partnering with organizations that promote underserved communities in outdoor spaces.
Further, we are launching our brand new Women’s Program, which is built to bridge the divide between outdoorsmen and women and offer new female anglers a safe place to hone their skills and learn from female mentors.
Our goal this year is to invite fresh perspectives to sportfishing and give anglers the tools to fight tooth and nail alongside us for the restoration of salmon and steelhead populations in the Pacific Northwest. Together, we dare to cross these boundaries into new waters. Join us!
