ALEXANDRIA, VA (August 7, 2018) – Today, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) and its Take Me Fishing™ campaign announces the Top 10 Mom-Approved Places to Fish and Boat. The full list of 50 – nominated by state fish and wildlife agencies and curated by moms –- was further whittled down to the Top 10 by nearly 32,000 votes from across the United States. The list represents a full spectrum of the nation’s diverse bodies of water, from a river in Alaska to a lake in the heart of the Midwest and the shores of Hawaii.
Each Top 10 Mom-Approved Place features family-friendly amenities such as recreation areas, picnic shelters, nearby parking, boat launches, safe water access and of course, plenty of fish to catch.
