FREE FISHING DAY ON SATURDAY, MAY 19

Saturday, May 19, is the second of four Free Fishing Days in Indiana this year.

On these special days, Indiana residents can fish public waters without needing a fishing license or a trout stamp. Free Fishing Days are prime opportunities for families to learn to fish because adults do not need a fishing license on those days, and children ages 17 and younger do not need a license on any day.

A number of events will be held across the state. Information on Free Fishing Day events is at dnr.IN.gov/fishfree.
