About this event

Free fishing days offer residents and non-residents who are 16 and older* to fish without a freshwater fishing license or recreational marine fishing registration (*Kids under 16 can always fish for free!). These days offer the perfect opportunity to try out fishing for the first time, to get back into the sport, or to take a friend or the whole family along to fish! Even though a license is not needed, all other fishing regulations apply.

2024 Free Fishing Days:

  • February 17 & 18
  • June 29 & 30
  • September 28
  • November 11

Note, February and November may consist of ice fishing!
