We have gathered over 20,000 lbs of Provo River Trash alone!


How we work

Fish for Garbage formed in 2014 because of the significant amount of trash littering streambanks and lakeshores of popular fishing locations. We began encouraging anglers to collect garbage in their net when walking out of a fishing destination and taking the time to have conversations with our friends. Our organization has grown from these small acts of stewardship to hosting localized events to clean heavily used waterways and promote Leave No Trace principles. We currently host two successful annual cleanups on the Provo and Weber Rivers drawing regional volunteers from numerous counties. For every event, we seek participation from interested regional companies and organizations to further develop community-engaged stewardship opportunities.
