Our Mission...

PayPal ButtonPayPal Button
“The Mission of Salmon for Soldiers is to offer a sense of normalcy and relaxation to our nation's Veterans through fishing.  Salmon for Soldiers' fishing opportunities are designed to help reduce stress while creating new relationships with others who love fishing.  Our events are designed to accommodate Veterans with paralysis, PTSD, TBI and other debilitating challenges."

Every donation counts.  Salmon for Soldiers depends on your help to send veterans and active duty military members fishing.    Salmon for Soldiers believes that a day on the water can be life changing.  Veterans and boat owners both report that fishing brings them a sense of peace and that they have made life long friends simply by fishing side by side.  The video below was produced by the  Veranth Family at our 2022 Day of Honor.  It is representative of the free fishing events  we provide through our volunteer and chartered boaters.  We hope you will join our effort.

The NW Yacht Brokers Association

Salmon for Soldiers was selected as the Seattle Boats Afloat Show Non-profit this year.  They are honoring our veterans by giving Salmon for Soldiers an opportunity to associate with many boat owners.  As many of you already know, our boaters are at the heart of our organization.  With out our numerous private boaters and our many guides, we could not honor our mission of fishing.  Big thank you to The NW Yacht Brokers Association and all of the boaters who support Salmon for Soldiers. 


Anthony's  Homeport Restaurant has partnered with Salmon for Soldiers to sponsor 4  guided fishing trips during 2023.   Captain Nick Kester will host 4 veterans on each of the trips and Anthony's will provide lunch for the crew and veterans after each trip.    Email for more information.

Please support our sponsors. 
When you are in Everett please think of Anthony's Homeport Restaurant as your homeport for good food.

2023 is going to be fun!
