Wenatchee Sportsmen's Association has a mission to follow and goals to achieve. This involves sharing of our heritage and traditions and getting our youth to become good stewards of our (their) natural resources.
You, can help us provide the experiences of the out of doors and the many things it has to offer. Your offer to join us in educating our youth is will provide a life time of rewards for you, as well as put smiles on these young faces.
There are a wide variety of steps you can take to help repair the damage. Whether you choose to change your personal habits, adjust your lifestyle, or become actively involved in fish stream and habitat restoration, your participation will make a vital difference to the stream, habitat and the fish, so the future generations of users have the same or better opportunity.

Each year Wenatchee Sportsmen's Association helps out young new anglers at the Rock Island Kids Fishing Day. This is quite an experience for us WSA members, as well as the many youth anglers that participate in this fishery.
This takes place at the " Pit Pond " in Rock Island. This fishery is for... JUVENILE ANGLERS ONLY ! WSA members helps the young anglers with question that they might have, help them rig up their fishing rods, give them bait or night crawlers to entice their quarry.
WSA will loan the young angler(s) a fishing rod to use, if they promise to return it when they are done using it, so others may have the same opportunity to learn, experience and enjoy fishing.

Falling into the water is the biggest risk, because it can result in hypothermia and drowning. For that reason, it’s always a good idea to wear a lifejacket. Washington State law requires children 12 years and younger to wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejackets on all boats under 19 feet, which includes most fishing boats. But a boating accident is only one of many ways to fall into the water while fishing. Fishing from docks, jetties, steep banks or along swift water can be dangerous, too, so wear a lifejacket whenever you’re near the water.
Lifejackets are available in sizes to fit everyone, from infants to large adults. Be sure that yours is the right size; large enough to button, zip or snap closed in front, but tight enough that you can’t slip out of it.
