Special report on fishing
An ever-increasing number of Americans continue to pursue recreational fishing as a source of enjoyment and a remedy for stress and anxiety, according to new data from the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation's (RBFF) 2022 Special Report on Fishing.
52.4 million Americans fished in 2021, marking an increase of 2.2 million in the last two years and 7 million since the positive trend that began in 2015. The latest total represents only a slight decrease from the record 54.7 million participants in 2020 as more Americans adapted their lives in the past year to continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
