Welcome to Veterans on the Water

Veterans on the Water was started by Steve Gillaspie (Vietnam Veteran) of Arlington, MN in 2016. Our goal is to create a FREE fishing experience of excitement, fun and laughter for our Veterans.

We offer several accessibility accommodations for our Vets on the fishing trips. Check out our dations page for details.
