April 26th, 2024: Are You Passionate About Minnesota Fishing?

As member of MN-FISH, of course you are! And that’s why I am reaching out. Once a year, MN-FISH holds our annual call for donations….

OUR FISHERIES CAN’T BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED OR THEY WILL BE LOST!

Minnesota’s land of 10,000 lakes, rivers and streams are under constant attack from invasive species, habitat loss, lakeshore development and increased fishing pressure resulting in lower catch rates and reduced enjoyment of our passion. We are also witnessing a major decline in kid/youth fishing participation, a reduction of fish stocking programs and fishing license sales. Since 2010, the legislature has not made major new investments for fish hatcheries, public accesses, fishing piers and shore fishing facilities despite the $200-$300 million in state taxes generated each year by economic fishing-related activity. Our state fish, the Walleye, doesn’t even have lobbying representation at the State Capitol!

OUR FISH, OUR FIGHT!

WHY YOU NEED TO ADD YOUR VOICE TO MN-FISH™!

  • You want Minnesota fishing to continually get better.
  • You want better stocking programs.
  • You want better lake access.
  • You want better management of our resources.
  • You want to help youth fishing programs.
  • You want our lakes and rivers to be clean and healthy.
  • You want to stop invasive species.
  • You want Minnesota fishing to get the funding it deserves.

As a Minnesota fishing guide who promotes CPR fishing (catch, photo & release) and the MN-FISH™ mission, there is nothing more important than clean water and a healthy multi species fishery.

OUR FISHERIES ARE WORTH THE FIGHT. WE NEED YOU TO JOIN MN-FISH™ TODAY!

The MN-FISH™ Sportfishing Foundation and Coalition, led by President Ron Schara, was formed to help reverse these negative trends and bring a strong, unified voice to St. Paul advocating for our anglers, our fisheries and our next generation of anglers.

There is only one way to take on these fishing related issues and raise awareness . . . and that’s working together! That’s why fishing leaders, innovators and legends came together to build a grassroots fishing advocacy group focused on improving fishing for future generations to enjoy. It’s your “State of Fishing”, and we need you to become a grassroots participant. Together, we can accomplish our mission!
