Free Fishing Days
This is your chance to try fishing without having to buy a permit. Our annual Free Fishing Days are the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June. Any person may fish state waters without permit, trout permit and prescribed area daily tag during Free Fishing Days.

Requirements for special permits still may apply at some county, city or private areas. Normal regulations, such as size and daily limits, still apply, too. Borrow a neighbor's rod and reel, or come out to a conservation area where a Free Fishing Days program is scheduled and borrow ours.
