Why Join the Clean Angling Coalition

The mission from the Clean Angling Coalition would be to promote voluntary cleaning practices and behavior change which involves everybody in cleaning. We want the aid of fishermen, angling companies and organizations to sign up in Inspect, Dry and clean practices. Which means that we use angling companies like fishing rod and wader companies, guides and outfitters, fly shops and everybody that likes you safeguarding our fishing assets. Inspect, Dry and clean each time.


Join In: Take The Pledge

All of the waters that we depend on to support our fishing and boating are being threatened by invasive species that have the potential to devastate natural habitats. These invaders are often inadvertently spread by anglers and boaters who are carrying unwanted hitchhikers to their favorite waters.

We must all take these simple actions to stop the spread of destructive invasive species:

  • INSPECT – carefully examine all of your equipment at the end of your trip to see if there are any visible signs of unwanted material attached. This includes any type of plant or mud. Remove anything visible.
  • CLEAN – use water to wash your equipment clean. High pressure water works great to remove anything that may be attached to your equipment. It’s ok to clean with water from the river or lake where you have been fishing or boating from because you will leave behind invasive species that you may have picked up. However, never clean your equipment at your put-in spot since you can easily be cleaning off hitchhikers that have been with you since your last trip. If you cannot clean before you leave a site, then make sure to clean at home where there is no chance that an invader can reach the water.
  • DRY – a thorough drying of your equipment will kill any live invaders you may have picked up. Make sure that every bit of hidden moisture is gone.
