Stay connected to your family this summer by investigating boating and fishing opportunities on any one of the many lakes, rivers and ponds our state has to offer. When is a good time to start? The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division encourages people of all ages to get outside during National Fishing and Boating Week, June 1-8, 2014.
“Outdoor recreation, such as boating and fishing, provides a great way to pull the family together and make positive connections with each other,” says John Biagi, chief of fisheries management. “Teaching a child to fish, or taking an outing on a boat can help instill a conservation ethic, while also introducing an exciting activity that could last a lifetime.”
National Fishing and Boating Week began in 1979 as National Fishing Week and was created to recognize the tradition of fishing, to broaden the spirit of togetherness and to share the values and knowledge of today’s anglers with tomorrow’s anglers.
