CLEANER LANDS, FRESHER FISH

WELCOME

Whiskey n' Walleye is an American non-profit fishing organization founded in 2018. It is a grassroots, volunteer-based community dedicated to bringing all types of anglers together, with the goal of improving and sustaining the lakes and rivers that mean the most to them.
 
CLEAN

 

Our objective is to improve the environment around our lakes and parks by hosting cleanups and events teaching the importance of sustainable practices.

PRESERVE

 

We focus on preserving the lake's future by stocking fish and funding angler access projects, like new cleaning stations and boat ramps.  

CONNECT

 

Our main goal is to bring people together. As a team, we aim to restore, protect and preserve the aquatic habitat in the Midwest for our future generations.

GET INVOLVED

Take the thousands of lakes, rivers and streams, combine that with the hidden vastness of the floodplains, marshes and the Ogallala Aquifer, then multiply it by the Great Lakes, the mighty Missouri River and the massive Mississippi river, and you’ve got one of the most incredible water systems on the planet. The Midwest is made up of over 175,000 square miles of surface water, and much, much more than that below the surface all working together to make up our drinking, fishing and boating water.

According to the EPA, about 33 million anglers spend $41.8 billion annually on trips, equipment, licenses, and other items to support their fishing activities. Our goal is to divert just a minuscule percentage of that back into the lakes, rivers and parks to benefit the walleye, improve fishing and clean up waterways throughout the Midwest.
