Across the country, many states offer days where you can fish for free. No permits required for any public waterway. Just grab a fishing pole and try your luck. Many free fishing days fall around National Fishing and Boating Week. For 2022, our states offer free fishing during the first half of June. During these days, residents and non-residents can participate. Check before you go out on the water. Fishing in federal waters still requires a license for the Red Snapper season. Daily limits, slot limits and length limits may be in effect.
