National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, takes place the first full week of June every year. This year it’s starting June 1, 2019. It’s when most state’s offer their FREE Fishing Days!
Free Fishing Days 2019
During National Fishing and Boating Week, most states offer free fishing days. These are days where anglers are allowed to fish on public bodies of water without a fishing license.
Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity for beginners to try out fishing for the first time. If you already have a fishing license, consider taking a friend or family member who has never been fishing, out on the water for the day.
