The Ohio Smallmouth Alliance is a Non-Profit Organization Dedicated to Improving Smallmouth Bass Fishing in Ohio Watersheds through Education, Habitat Preservation and Responsible Management.
Formed in 1993, The Ohio Smallmouth Alliance (TOSA) is an active organization of anglers dedicated to improving the quality of smallmouth bass fishing in all Ohio watersheds through education, habitat preservation and responsible management.
Ohio’s smallmouth fisheries face serious problems – many waterways suffer from habitat degradation while others hold few large fish because of over-harvest and outdated fishing regulations.
Since its inception, TOSA has been an advocate on water quality issues affecting our sport and has played a key role in Ohio’s special regulations for stream smallmouth bass implemented in 1998.
The Ohio Smallmouth Alliance is actively involved in efforts to promote catch and release, a practice that ensures the future of this sport. TOSA is a proud participant in Ohio’s Adopt-A-Waterway program and currently sponsors river clean-up activities across the state. As an alliance TOSA works closely with state and local governments, related conservation organizations, and other angling groups to improve smallmouth bass fishing.
