The goal of refuge angler volunteers is to making fishing available to people of all ages and abilities. Anglers help children and adults to experience the thrill of having a fish on the line. General nature-based programs and therapeutic fishing programs are held from the open of fishing in April to the closing in November. Volunteers do not need to be expert anglers, but do need plenty of patience and willingness to teach. Refuge anglers work with individuals and groups of all ages and abilities to assist them with baiting hooks and removing hooks from fish.

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the premier government agency dedicated to the conservation, protection, and enhancement of fish, wildlife and plants, and their habitats. We are the only agency in the federal government whose primary responsibility is the conservation and management of these important natural resources for the American public.
The agency includes both the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System.
The Service's origins date back to 1871 when Congress established the U.S. Fish Commission to study the decrease in the nation’s food fishes and recommend ways to reverse that decline. (More on our history below.) Today, we are a diverse and largely decentralized organization, employing about 8,000 dedicated professionals working out of facilities across the country.
