Family fishing in our country’s National Forests & Grasslands is a tradition and is one of the ways to celebrate the arrival of summer for millions of Americans. It’s a great time with family, it’s fun, and it’s a way to connect with nature.
Did you know that the USDA Forest Service is more than Smoky the Bear, 193 million acres, 220,000 miles of fishable rivers and creeks, and more than 10 million acres of lakes to enjoy and explore. From world-class fishing for salmon, steelhead and trout to secluded perch and pike lakes, easily accessible ponds for panfish and perch, to large rivers for catfish and sturgeon, the USDA Forest Service offers recreational fishing opportunities for everyone.
