Free Fishing Weekend, June 2-3
Start Date: 5/29/2018
Event Description:
Saturday, June 2, and Sunday, June 3, are the last 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. Free Fishing Weekend is also a great opportunity to take someone fishing who doesn’t already have a license.

DNR properties and other sites across the state will be hosting youth and family fishing events.

People interested in attending a Free Fishing Weekend event are encouraged to contact the host property in advance because some activities may require registration.

For more information on specific events and to find a printable list of all upcoming fishing events, see
