June 1–9 is National Fishing and Boating Week


National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, lasts from June 1 to June 9, 2013. There’s no better time to get outside and enjoy the water. It’s also a prime time to enjoy one of the nation’s many free fishing days or weeks, to plan a family fishing trip, or to mentor a young aspiring angler. Take Me Fishing provides tips to celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week, and state-by-state lists of events.
