National Go Fishing Day

June 18 is National Go Fishing Day

Our employees are showing support for National Go Fishing Day. Held every June 18, this holiday provides a fun excuse to enjoy the outdoors. It is also an opportunity to shed some light on the importance of fish and aquatic resources, which provide important ecological, economic and social benefits. 

"Dear Angler, 

Few things can rival time spent enjoying the great outdoors. At the top of the list for me is fishing. Enjoying time on the water is one of the greatest adventures we can seek, and for most of us, there is an opportunity waiting right outside our back door. On June 18, grab the opportunity, a pole, a friend or family member and head to your favorite body of water. “Wet a line!” Take part in a ritual that is thousands of years old yet feels brand new every time."

— Matt Cochran, Fisheries Director
