Saturday 6/6/15
Free Fishing Day 


On Saturday, June 6, Alabamians will have the opportunity to fish for free in most public waters. Free Fishing Day is part of National Fishing and Boating Week, which runs June 6-14. Approved by the Alabama Legislature, Free Fishing Day allows residents and non-residents to fish without a fishing license for a day in both salt and fresh waters.
The fishing license exemption on Free Fishing Day does not affect some lakes that may still require fees and permits. Fishing in a private pond requires the pond owner’s permission. Anglers can visit http://outdooralabama.com/where-fish-alabama to find a great fishing spot for Free Fishing Day.
