National Fishing & Boating Week

National Fishing & Boating Week: June 1–9, 2024

National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, is the perfect reason to get out on the water and experience the joys of boating and fishing. Coinciding with most state's free fishing days, National Fishing and Boating Week occurs each year during the first full week of June.

Time spent fishing and boating is a great opportunity to talk, laugh, relax, reconnect and create good memories with friends and family.

How can you celebrate?

  • In Georgia, there are two FREE fishing days held during National Fishing and Boating Week: June 1 & June 8, 2024.
  • Georgia also offers one additional FREE fishing day on September 28, 2024 on National Hunting and Fishing Day!
  • Additionally, there are dozens of kids fishing events held this week, especially on the weekend. Take your child to one of these events, especially if you or your child, is new to fishing. Great way to meet people, get expert advice and spend time together.

National Fishing and Boating Week was initiated by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation Take Me Fishing program.
