Our Mission...

“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.  We depend 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 so representative of the experience we provide through our volunteer boaters.  We hope you will join our effort.
