Free fishing days 2020

Free fishing days are coming up over the next few months in most states. Head on over here to check out the full calendar to see when your state is holding free fishing days.

On these days, you can fish for free without a license. This is a great opportunity to see if fishing is something you and your family enjoy without the commitment of paying for a license.

In addition, from June 6-14, 2020 there will be National Fishing & Boating week. You can learn more about that here.
