You can fish for free this weekend. It’s the annual free fishing weekend – traditionally held on the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June.
That’s lake area fishing guide Jack Uxa. No license is required to fish state waters…if you’re unsure if it applies to where you want to fish, contact the Department of Conservation in advance. Keep in mind, as well, that all other state guidelines including catch sizes and limits remain in effect and must be followed.
