National Fishing and Boating Week
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.
