Good News: Fishing Participation Continues to Rise

Recent findings from the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation found that fishing participation is up again.

Forthcoming information by both Outdoor Foundation Outdoor Recreation Participation Report and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) Historical Fishing License Sales Data have concluded an uptick in fishing for the second year in a row.

This comes after a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife report showing an 8.2% in fishing participation during the 2011-2016 period.
