State Fishing Updates Related to COVID-19

Many people have contacted us about confusing information and hoaxes around the recommended guidelines for fishing as well as fishing closures related to COVID-19. The American Sportfishing Association and Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation have been collecting resource information and creating these interactive maps so you can quickly connect to the fishing updates in your state.
You can also find these interactive maps on and as well where you can click to updates about fishing guidelines for each state. They also have a ton more resource listings related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The ASA is closely monitoring each state’s announcements and will be updating their page regularly. Additionally you can sign up for their newsletter here to stay current on updates.

In addition you will find a list of each state’s agency fishing updates and regulations as well as announcements related to COVID-19.
