Looking for a fun way to spend your Father’s Day this year? Fishing, having a barbeque or picnic, and going camping are all dad-worthy activities.

Fishing Tips

When better to go fishing than on Father’s Day? This year, our Best Fishing Days are June 13 to 28, 2018!

Check our fishing tackle box list so you’re all set! And be sure to look at these handy fishing tips before you and your dad head out!

Once you’ve caught some fish, here’s how to cook them up for the family.

Father’s Day Recipes

This leads to our next idea, a cookout! After a day of fishing, make this “Dad’s Catch” Baked Fish!  See all our best Grilling Tips and Recipes for more ideas. Also, consult our guide to grilling vegetables.

Remember, dads are more than just grill masters! For a sweet finish to a great Dad’s Day, try these dad-created and -approved chocolate oatmeal cookies.

The week after Father’s Day, the Summer Solstice occurs! The Summer Solstice is the official start of summer, and the “longest day of the year” (the day with the longest period of daylight). The days leading up to and directly following the solstice are also some of the longest of the year, which means you’ll have plenty of time to celebrate your father! Make the most of this daylight by packing up a picnic basket and heading outdoors to your favorite spot. Here are a few of our favorite picnic recipe ideas to give you some inspiration.

Camping With Dad

Camping is a tried-and-true way to spend quality time with Dad. This Father’s Day, take him on a camping expedition that both of you will never forget. No one wants to spend all day cooking when you could be enjoying the outdoors, so try these quick and easy “Potato Hobo Packs,” which can be made for either breakfast or dinner.

Don’t forget to make s’mores, too, the most important part of any camping trip.

We at The Old Farmer’s Almanac hope you have an unforgettable Father’s Day!  See our Father’s Day page for more recipes—plus, some great quotes for that Father’s Day card!
