The Recreation.Gov web site identifies fishing and other recreational opportunities on Federal lands. There are many units in the National Wildlife Refuge System through the United States that are open to fishing.
See the Web sites of State fish and wildlife agencies for information on other fishing opportunities. Individual states manage fishing license programs and seasons. Many States operate extensive systems on wildlife management areas or other areas open to regulated public fishing. In addition to their home pages, other fishing-related sites on the Web may identify opportunities for fishing a particular species or in the particular geographic area of interest to you.
