Question: I am stuck at home and want to go fishing. Can I do that safely under the State’s COVID-19 guidance?
Answer: Yes, fishing is a great way to get out of the house while practicing social distancing. Anglers are required to practice social distancing measures while fishing, such as remaining six feet apart.
  • What other resources should I consult before deciding to fly? Check with local governments (counties, cities, etc.) for any additional restrictions.
