Save The River promotes Catch & Release on Rush Outdoor TV

This summer Save The River added smallmouth bass to our longstanding Catch and Release program.

Since 1987 we have promoted catch and release fishing for Muskellunge, a species threatened on the St. Lawrence River, saving over 1,000 of these iconic fish. The addition of bass to Save The River’s Catch and Release Program is a continuation of our efforts to improve the overall health of the St. Lawrence River and to ensure a healthy, sustainable fishery.


We are adding lessons on catch and release to current In The Schools and On The Water programs for K-12 students. Students will learn about the different types of fish in the River, what impacts have been made on bass populations and how to properly practice catch and release techniques.


Catch yes, but eat fresh and release the rest.

      A special thank you to all of our 2014 sponsors. Their generous support has made this program possible and helped insure a successful first year.
