keep America fishing

Congress Must Make Fishing a Priority
on our Nation's Public Lands

Lack of public access to public resources is a real and serious threat;
new legislation will open more federal lands to recreational fishing and hunting



Take Action The Situation

Lack of access is the primary reason that keeps anglers from enjoying a day on the water. With expanding land development and growing regulations restricting angler access, federally owned lands are more important than ever for recreational fishing opportunity. However, a recent Congressional report concluded that more than 35 million acres of land owned by two federal land management agencies – the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service – have inadequate access for sportsmen and women.

The Solution

The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act (H.R. 2834), will increase access to angling, hunting and recreational shooting on federal lands by prioritizing these activities within agencies' land management plans. The bill will require that federal lands be operated as "open-until-closed" with respect to recreational access and that any new regulations, management plans or land use initiatives be evaluated to minimize their impact on traditional outdoors activities such as fishing.

Take Action

The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act will increase public access to federal lands for recreational fishing and other traditional outdoor activities. Click here to take action now!
