It’s going to be a great weekend to get hooked on the most participated-in outdoor event in the world. It’s a free fishing weekend across Missouri. You’ll be able to take to the waterways without need for a license June 8th and 9th. The free fishing weekend is always held on the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June. It applies to state waters. User fees and permits may still be required at county, city, or private fishing areas. If you aren’t sure which of those applies to your favorite fishing hole, you may want to check before heading out.
