Plan Fishing Trip Using Game and Parks Publications


Plan a fishing trip with the help of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission publications.

Prepare to make your trip the best by reviewing Nebraska fishing regulations and researching locations in our 2024 Fishing Guide and our 2024 Fishing Forecast.

The Fishing Guide is a summary of regulations and orders and includes a section detailing the state’s public fishing areas. The Fishing Forecast provides a look at where some of the best fishing, and maybe some of the biggest fish, may be found in Nebraska based on 2023 lake sampling.

Both publications are online at, and printed copies may be picked up wherever fishing permits are sold. Find additional planning tools, such as a fish stocking database, lake contour maps, and other fishing publications β€” or buy your annual fishing permit β€” at the same website.
