After Years of Decline, Fishing Among Kids Increasing

According to two new national surveys, fishing participation among two important age groups–6-12 and 13-17–is rising for the first time in several years. Increases were also seen among age groups 18-24 and 25-44.  “More than 33 million people went fishing in 2011. They spent $41.8 billion on trips, equipment, licenses and other items, an average of $1,262 per angler, the [U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service] survey said.”
