“For anglers in the Pacific Northwest, water is life. The more water we have, the more fish and wildlife thrive. It’s easy for our generation to take clean water for granted, but look at how our waterways were treated historically, and you’ll gain a better appreciation for the importance of clean, cold sources of water, and why we fight so hard to protect it. Now, more than ever, advocates must step up and demand that clean water regulations improve, not deteriorate so there is a future for fish, wildlife and the needs we have as the human race.”
