First four free fishing days announced


Bring the family to your local fishing hole Saturday, the first of four Indiana free fishing days this year.

On free fishing days, Hoosiers can fish public waters without a fishing license or a salmon/trout stamp. Free fishing days are a great opportunity for families to learn to fish together because adults do not need a fishing license on those days. Children 17 and younger do not need a license on any day.

On Saturday, a family learn to fish workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge in Seymour. Advance registration is required by calling 812-522-4352, ext. 12, or emailing [email protected]. Find information at

State parks also are hosting free fishing day events. You can find a list of state park events at
