The BAY AREA SPORTFISHERS is a service organization that annually hosts children from Justice Empowerment Services (formerly Friends Outside), part of Catholic Charities of Santa Clara, a United Way agency, for the South Bay Fishing in the City event, a program to teach inner-city youth ecology, biology, conservation and how to fish, jointly sponsored with the Department of Fish and Game, County of Santa Clara and City of San Jose. Our members volunteer at the Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project hatchery and contribute to other community activities throughout the year. The BAY AREA SPORTFISHERS strive to foster and maintain a high standard of sportsmanship. Scheduled monthly fishing and picnicking activities provide a wide assortment of fun for the experienced fisherperson, "first timers" and families. Here's your opportunity to develop recreational fishing skills and to share fishing knowledge with others in an informal social atmosphere.
