Take a Bag Fishing
|Always carry an empty trash
bag with you when you go fishing or plan a day out
It takes but 10 minutes to pick up 10 pounds of trash. Deposit it in proper disposal containers.
PLEASE. Don't leave the bags by the roadside or other places for someone else to dispose of.
|Policing and Policing||Always pick up your trash when fishing, swimming, or otherwise enjoying time by the riverside. When you buy bait it is usually put into plastic bags for you to handle. Make sure those bags and bait containers leave with you. If you see someone trashing, remind them of their responsibility to take it with them. Report violators to the proper authorities. It is against the law to dispose of anything in waterways or along roadsides.NEVER, EVER leave fishing line behind. It can kill. Click here to Read about The Law|
|Take Responsibility||Take responsibility for your
actions as well as those with you. Remember, it is
river and everyone has a part in keeping it clean for future generations. What you do today DOES count tomorrow.

program, why not an Adopt A River one also? Contact
