Who is Fish For The Future?

Fish for the Future is a non-allocative, education based, conservation program dedicated to allowing opportunity while minimizing impact. Alaska’s Kenai and Kasilof Rivers are home to some of the largest Chinook (King) salmon on earth. The four and five ocean fish that give these rivers their reputations are unique and extremely limited in number, this demanding an anglers special consideration.
Fish for the Future asks anglers to focus their harvest on species of abundance, such as sockeye salmon, and consider returning big kings to the river to benefit their future and ours. By participating in this exciting new conservation program, you can benefit from its numerous rewards and most importantly, make a difference in the river you love.
Actions speak louder than words, so make the powerful statement, one fish at a time, that sustaining the great king salmon of the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers is not only important, it’s our obligation as responsible users of the resource.
 
Fish for the future!
