“It is a very therapeutic outlet to get me out of my house and on the beautiful water with amazing boat owners who CARED and gave me a morning of stress free fishing; having a fun time, and meeting others at the event.” – Warrior, American Lake, WA


“Wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work in organizing such a wonderful event. As a disabled veteran I was touched by the interest my boat captain made towards my service in the army. I have never fished for bass before and found the experience exhilarating and calming as the captain put us on the fish and taught us how to be successful. Thanks again. I would recommend this event to any veteran. “

This Take a Warrior Fishing event is designed to support military personnel and their families, specifically targeting persons assigned to Warrior Transition Commands, by creating an adaptive, community-based outdoor recreation experience through the sport of fishing. Participants will have the opportunity to spend a morning on the water targeting a variety of species of fish, receive a high-quality Lew’s rod & reel combo and Flambeau tackle bag, and will return to shore for lunch.

All equipment is provided to participants and licenses are not needed.
