Grassroots Advocacy for our Nation’s 55 Million Anglers

There’s a lot of politics in fishing. No really, there is. From bans on your tackle to the creation of no-fishing zones, our nation’s pastime is often under threat of being over-regulated, or worse, being completely taken away.

Through policy, science and conservation, the Government Affairs team of the American Sportfishing Association works to minimize access restrictions, promote clean waters and restore fish populations. And while they’re successful dealing one-on-one with our Congressional leaders, we all know it’s the power of the people that will influence positive change. That’s where Keep America Fishing and our network of nearly 1 million supporters comes in.

Keep America Fishing gives you – the public – a place to learn about the issues we’re facing, unite our efforts as a community, and present a strong voice. When millions of Americans come together and ask our political leaders to vote in favor of recreational fishing, they will listen.
