Summary
Fishing and boating allow you to release stress, relax, and enjoy wildlife.

In 2002, George W. Bush declared National Fishing and Boating Week a national holiday, even though it has been observed unofficially for decades. This week was initiated by Take Me Fishing, a branch of the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF) to encourage seasoned anglers to share their love and knowledge of fishing with younger anglers and increase participation in recreational fishing and boating.

Participating in National Fishing and Boating Week helps fund conservation efforts for national waterways. When fishing tackle or a license is purchased, a portion of the sales goes to the preservation of our nation's waterways through the Sport Fish Restoration Program. This program provides grant funds to the states and fish and wildlife agencies to restore and manage declining fisheries, according to the FWC.
