Thought about perhaps taking your boat out in the water this week perhaps bringing a fishing rod and tackle box along to catch some fish while you're at it. That is perhaps the best way one can celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week. This first week of June, Nat Gillespie of the U.S. Forest Service, offers this recommendation for a fishing spot or boat launch. Your nearby National Forest or grassland. “We're blessed with some of the best fisheries in the country over 220,000 miles of fishbowl rivers and streams. Ten million acres of lakes and reservoirs and ponds, incredible saltwater fisheries, particularly in the coast of Alaska.”

 

And the National Fisheries Program Leader for the U.S. Forest Service adds making sure clean, available and healthy water sources for recreation opportunities, such as fishing and boating, is part of the agency's mission. “The Forest Service does all kinds of multiple use activities but we're taking care of lands and watersheds for recreation which is by far the biggest economy on Forest Service land. There's a lot of work going on out there with a variety of other partners to try to make sure that the incredible recreation that we offer is there for future generations. And we work with the states who manage the regulations for fishing and we manage the habitat so that's how this partnership works.
