Keep Fish Wet Announces Annual Fundraiser


Keep Fish Wet is running a series of raffles and an auction for their 2023 fundraiser.  Enter for your chance to win gear and trips both near and far.  Both the raffle and auction run until November 12th.

Every penny goes to support Keep Fish Wet education and outreach programs to help create better outcomes for each fish that is released.  As many of our most iconic fisheries face growing anthropogenic pressures, Keep Fish Wet believes that we have a responsibility to build community around the use of science-based best practices for catch-and-release and angling in the face of climate change.  As a nonprofit without membership we rely on your support to make our programs available to all anglers.

This year, Keep Fish Wet has added an additional way to support the organization and your favorite shop, guide, or lodge at the same time.  Keep Fish Wet has developed a best practices Toolkit to help guides, shops, and lodges share their science-based best practices easily and effectively with guests and clients.  When you donate $75 to Keep Fish Wet, they will send a Toolkit to the guide, shop, or lodge of your choice.

Many thanks to the fundraiser sponsors including: Patagonia Fly Fish , SET Flyfishing, Farbank, Soul Fly Lodge, NRS, Breeo, R.L. Winston Fly Rods, Bauer Fly Reels, Cheeky Fishing , YETI , Thomas & Thomas, Fulling Mill , Racel Finn, Rep Your Water, Costa, Fly Fish NH, Great Lakes Fly Fishing, Kismet Outfitters, Emerald Water Anglers, Gillies & Fallon Guide Service, West Fork Anglers, Afuera Coffee Co, Trout Hunter, Benny Blanco, and Hilary Hutcheson.

About Keep Fish Wet

Keep Fish Wet is a 501c3 nonprofit that promotes the use of science-based best practices to catch, handle, and release fish.  Science shows that even small changes in how an angler catches, handles, and releases a fish can have positive outcomes once that fish swims away. Keep Fish Wet aggregates and translates the science on catch-and-release into a usable format, and then acts as a hub to disseminate guidelines to a wide range of stakeholders.  Not only does using best practices increase survival rates of fish, but it also helps fish return to their normal behavior as quickly as possible after release. Using best practices for catch-and-release is a quick and effective way to put conservation into practice.  For more information, visit
