The aim of the research was to provide an overview of the status of recreational anglers in the Croatian areas of the Sava and Danube rivers in many aspects: social and demographic characteristics, preferences, level of fishing experience and involvement, understanding of legal regulations, consumptive orientation, attitudes and satisfaction levels, the dynamics of fishing and the structure of catch, etc. A questionnaire of 48 questions was issued and distributed among the recreational anglers on the fishing locations. The survey included a representative number of 383 recreational fishermen. Using Redundancy Analysis RDA with dummy variables explanatory variables, we studied the relationships of important recreational fishery parameters. We concluded that, as there is a variety of competing users of freshwater resources there is a necessity to provide the laws to all the parties involved. In addition, we have found a relationship between knowledge of legal regulations and level of education. Recreational fisheries are oft en considered satisfactory even if no fish has been caught. The key factors are contact with nature, social interaction and breaks from day-to-day routines. The basis for developing satisfying recreational fishing experiences provides understanding anglers motivations.
