Free fishing day set for Saturday

Saturday is the second of four free fishing days in Indiana this year.

On these special days, Hoosiers 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

Several family learn to fish workshops are scheduled. Advance registration is required. Some of the workshops are already full, but others have spots available.

People interested in attending a free fishing day event should contact the host property in advance because some activities require registration.

The final two free fishing days for 2018 are June 2 and 3.
