Bay Area Sportfishers (BASF) is a service organization that sponsors the South Bay Fishing in the City for Kids event, a program to teach inner-city youth how to fish, conserve and respect nature, 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. BASF strives to foster and maintain a high standard of sportsmanship. Scheduled monthly meetings and fishing outings provide a wide assortment of fun for the experienced fisherperson, "first timers" and families. Here's your opportunity to meet others interested in fishing, developing recreational fishing skills and to share fishing knowledge in a fun, social atmosphere.
