Since its beginning in 1990, the Task Force has directed its resources and energy to the challenge of developing community partnerships and strategies to improve and restore the recreational and commercial fisheries of the Pacific Northwest.
    • The Wild Steelhead Coalition: The Wild Steelhead Coalition (WSC) is a new organization dedicated to increasing the return of wild steelhead to the waters and rivers of the Pacific Northwest.
    • Washington Trail Blazers: The Trail Blazers were formed in 1933 and have been dedicated to "better alpine fishing" ever since. The club works as volunteers for the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife backpacking trout fry into Washington's mountain lakes for the angling public to enjoy.
    • Washington Water Trust: Washington Water Trust restores river and stream flows to help sustain the fisheries, agriculture, water quality and recreational resources vital to everyone. We work hand-in-hand with many diverse partners to acquire water rights through innovative solutions including voluntary purchases, leases, gifts and transfers. We also work to create a greater understanding of the water rights marketplace and the importance of restoring stream flows to the future we all share.
    • Wild Fish Conservancy: Formally Washington Trout, Wild Fish Conservancy is a nonprofit science-based organization formed in 1989 to preserve, protect and restore Washington's wild fish and their habitats.
