National Hunting and Fishing Day
Each year, National Hunting and Fishing Day celebrates the accomplishments of conservation-minded sportsmen. Enjoy free fishing at Tingley Beach the fourth Saturday of every September. No fishing license required.
Outdoor sportsmen are some of the most vocal supporters of conservation and wildlife management. Hunters and anglers recognize the importance of regulating sporting activities to protect the future of wildlife. At the beginning of the 1900s, sportsmen and President Theodore Roosevelt, urged sustainable uses of fish and game. This movement led to the protection of many wildlife areas and natural resources.
