Helping Restore our Nation’s...


Water quality is essential for quality fishing, enjoyable and safe outdoor recreation, and public health. Over half of all reservoirs are eutrophic or hypereutrophic.


Habitat has become degraded across the nation, with the average age of large reservoirs over 50.


Over 60 million anglers generate $46 billion in sales which has a ripple effect through the nation's economy generating $115 billion in overall economic impact.

“Friends of Reservoirs is an outstanding opportunity for B.A.S.S. and the B.A.S.S. Nation conservation programs to concentrate our habitat restoration and enhancement efforts where they will do the most good. The Reservoir Fish Habitat Partnership under the National Fish Habitat Action Plan was a dream come true for me as B.A.S.S. Conservation Director, and through the Friends of Reservoirs partnerships we can make that dream a reality.”
