Go Fishing for Free (Even Without a License)

During National Fishing and Boating Week, you'll have the chance to go fishing for free, whether you have a license or not. Find out what free fishing days have in store in your area.

You usually need a license in order to go fishing, and having one type of license doesn’t necessarily allow you to fish wherever you want. Fortunately, this rule is lifted in most states during National Fishing and Boating Week. This is a great opportunity for first-timers to try their hand at fishing and see if they could become lifelong enthusiasts! Pick up your bait, check the forecast, and find out what kind of fun freebies your state has to offer.
