Free Fishing Day is June 11

If you want to go fishing, but don't have a license, your chance is coming up.

Every year the Idaho Department of Fish and Game offers people a chance to try fishing without purchasing a license on Free Fishing Day. This year Free Fishing Day is Saturday June 11. For this one day only anyone can fish in Idaho. Although a license is not required, anglers must abide by the fishing rules that apply to the water they are fishing. Those rules can be found on the web at

Fish and Game partners with other sponsors in local communities throughout Idaho for special events on Free Fishing Day. For events in your area contact the regional office of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game in your region.
