Aquatic resource education and communication are critical components of the DNR’s fisheries management programs. DNR-sponsored youth and family-oriented fishing events are popular, especially during National Fishing and Boating Week and West Virginia’s Free Fishing Days in June. DNR staff work with other organizations and communities to develop fishing and education opportunities. The Governor’s Youth in the Outdoors and DNR’s Becoming an Outdoorswoman programs are successful in introducing new participants to fishing and educating anglers of the future.

DNR fisheries staff are continuously working to improve communication. New outreach efforts will help us to explain what we do as fisheries managers. We are also committed to strengthening partnerships with other state and federal agencies, and groups with sport fishing interests to cooperatively develop research, public access, and habitat enhancements.
