Conserving native fish in National Parks

The National Park Service manages fish, and regulates fishing opportunities to conserve native fish communities in their natural state. The Fish and Fishing web-page provides information about fish species in parks and the fishing regulations that apply. By following regulations, and practicing catch and release fishing of native fish, you can help ensure that native fish in our national parks will be enjoyed for generations to come. Learn more about fish, fishing, aquatic habitats, and the work we do to conserve these valued resources.
