The Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups (RFEGs) are a statewide network of fourteen non-profit organizations that engage their communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners to enhance and restore salmon and steelhead populations in their local watersheds. Funded through a combination of state and federal dollars, the RFEGs engage in a wide array of salmon enhancement activities that range from large-scale construction to community education to citizen science. Since 1995 these groups have conducted over 3,500 salmon projects, opened over 900 miles of stream to fish access, accumulated over 1.5 million donated volunteer hours, and released over 75 million fish.
