XStream Angler

The Game and Fish Department's XStream Angler program showcases some of the state's most important streams and the work we've done to protect the water flowing in those streams. The XStream Angler program was created to encourage anglers and anyone else who values flowing waters to seek out the many popular and not-so-popular, streams where instream flow water rights have been obtained over the past quarter century to protect fisheries.

The list of streams with instream flow water rights is growing every year. Regardless of whether you've never fished a stream or are a die-hard angler, there's now more incentive than ever to start fishing or keep fishing in some of the state's more XStream places.
