Get those fishing poles ready! Free Fishing Day in Alabama is next Saturday!
Each calendar year, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources designates a "Free Fishing Day" for the public to fish recreationally in public waters without a fishing license. Saturday, June 9, 2012, had been designated as Free Fishing Day.
There is an exemption of the usual fishing license requirement on that day. Some lakes may still require fees and permits, and owner’s permission is required to fish private ponds.
