National Fishing and Boating Week runs through Sunday

National Fishing and Boating Week opened last Saturday and will continue through Sunday.

National Fishing and Boating Week opened last Saturday and will continue through Sunday, with several states offering free fishing days and events held by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Discover Boating and Take Me Fishing are encouraging people to post their first catch of the day, the season or of a lifetime with the hashtag #FirstCatch.

Discover Boating is also spreading the word that it has lists of places to boat and fish around the country on its website.

States offering free fishing days can be found here, and boating and fishing events can be found by state here.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is encouraging boat owners to take someone out on their boat this week and for boaters and anglers to share the message on social media.
