COVID-19: We are currently in a hold pattern for this year’s tournament (2020) and will be making an announcement in early May regarding the status. Please stay safe and we will be getting back to you soon.
In River or Ocean was founded in memory of Clay Roberts by his family and friends to promote his passion of the fishing and love of the water.
The purpose of In River or Ocean is to promote the protection, restoration and rational management of all river and ocean resources, working as a steward of the waterways by providing educational opportunities regarding conservation and responsible use and care of our natural resources for this and future generations.
IROO supports environmental education through integrating existing conservation programs with an annual memorial scholarship and parent-child fishing tournament. This focused connection of services creates an effective hands-on educational opportunity for families to learn and live a holistic approach to conservationism.
