Brand New - SWWA Angler's Passport Program

UPDATED         November 22, 2020

GREAT NEWS! Due to the Covid 19 Virus & ever changing circumstances beyond our control, the Angler’s Passport Program has been extended to December 1, 2021. The Awards ceremony/Prize distribution date in December 2021 has not yet been decided, we will announce the date when it is decided. Also due to Covid 19 Virus we have had to eliminate SWWA Members attending Events & Meetings to verify “catches/events”.

Verifications must be emailed to: southwestwashingtonanglers@gmail.com

PLEASE include the Angler’s Passport #, first & last name & species name/event type. 

The Angler’s Passport fishing program rewards responsible fishing, conservation of our natural environment, receiving education on sustainability, ecology and water safety and fishing and community volunteerism to support these causes.

Accomplish the Angler’s Passport activities on your own or a great activity to do with your kids, grandkids, nieces & nephews or friends. How about an Angler’s Passport Challenge with friends or co-workers!
