National Catch and Release Day

Observed on the second Saturday of April each year, National Catch and Release Day in 2023 falls on April 13. This annual celebration acknowledges anglers of diverse skill levels who adopt the catch and release method of fishing. It provides an excellent opportunity to advocate for this technique, which contributes to the conservation of native fish species and promotes sustainability among recreational fishermen. The commendable catch and release approach avoids harm to native fish populations and, in fact, fosters increased fish numbers and a more balanced ecosystem by releasing the fish back into the water.
