You can read the Executive Order to shelter in your home at the link below

Section 1, paragraph 12(b) specifically exempts fishing businesses from shutdown.

Recreational is harder. Section 1, paragraph 5(c) allows travel and leaving the home for recreational activities. The examples do not include fishing, but activities like hiking and biking are there. It think fishing is reasonably encompassed.

There is some hope but even the fishing that is permitted to me seems to be commercial fishing like the carp netters on the river.If travel is allowed to recreational activities why can't someone be alone in their boat far away from the general population?Is there a good lawyer amongst our members to sort this out for us?

I can’t believe there would be any lawyers on this site.

I interpreted recreational activity to include fishing as well. As long as you can find an open launch or shoreline and adhere to social distancing you should be good to go in my opinion. Additionally, being outside and recreating are some of the best things you can do for your immune system.
