1. Supports conservation efforts - without good resource management, there will be no place to fish and no fish to catch.
2. Practice catch and release - it is okay to keep a few fish to eat, but release the rest so they can be caught again. Be sure to take your camera when you go fishing so you can take pictures and show your friends. Pictures also make good reminders of how much fun you had.
3. Does not pollute; properly recycles and disposes of trash - pollution kills fish. Proper recycling and trash disposal prevents pollution and keeps our environment enjoyable. Never leave trash on the shore or throw it out of the boat. Never sink cans, or leave bait containers. And never throw fishing line in the water. This kills fish, birds, and other wildlife. Keep it in your pocket until you get home. And then, take it to a recycling drop-off center.
4. Practices safe angling and boating - you will have more fun if you are a better angler and a safer boater.
5. Obeys fishing and boating regulations - these regulations are for your safety and to ensure the quality of your resources.
6. Respects other anglers' rights - everybody will have more fun fishing.
7. Respects property owners' rights - many areas will be closed to fishing if you are not respectful of private property.
8. Shares fishing knowledge and skills - help others become better anglers so they will have more fun.
9. Does not release live bait into waters - the bait you are using may not occur naturally where you are fishing and may have bad effects on the fish community if released.
10. Promotes ethical sport fishing - encourage other people to go fishing, experience the fun, and be an ethical angler like you.
If we all take care of the environment now, everyone can enjoy fishing and the great outdoors in the future.
