Save the French Broad, One Fish at a Time

Save the French Broad, One Fish at a Time

For the month of August, fishing will be good throughout the French Broad River Watershed for both fishers and non-fishers alike. In partnership with Sweetwater, MountainTrue is hosting a campaign to clean up the French Broad River through the sale of paper fish in local restaurants, bars and businesses. Show your support for swimmable, fishable and drinkable water in the French Broad.
