DOEE Fishing Survey

The D.C. Department of Energy and Environment’s (DOEE) Fisheries Research Branch is conducting their annual creel survey and encourages local anglers to participate. The goal of the survey is to better understand recreational angling efforts, perceptions, and harvests within Washington D.C. The information obtained from the voluntary survey will be used to inform fisheries management decisions and regulations. DOEE encourages anglers to fill out the form after every fishing trip.
