Free Fishing Day This Saturday in Idaho
Idaho's Free Fishing Day is an annual event held the second Saturday every June. That means this Saturday is the day to grab your pole and try your hand at catching a fish….for free without having a license.
All anglers, young, old, residents and nonresidents, can celebrate the day by fishing Idaho's waterways without a license.
If you've never been fishing, Free Fishing Day is also a great day to learn. Idaho Fish and Game along with other volunteers set up several free events at local fishing waters throughout the state to help first-timers discover the joys of fishing.
There are a limited number of loaner rods and reels available to practice with but if you have your own equipment you are encouraged to bring it along with you.
All other fishing rules and regulations including limits, opening dates and tackle restrictions remain in effect. Always check the seasons and rules for the water where you plan to go fishing.
