Free Fishing Weekend is June 5-6

Indiana DNR Release:

Kids and adults can celebrate Free Fishing Weekend, June 5-6, at recreation areas located across Indiana that are planning fun fishing derbies, casting clinics, fish-cleaning demonstrations and cooking classes.

Hoosier adults do not need a license or a trout/salmon stamp to fish Indiana waters during Free Fishing Weekend. Children age 17 and younger do not need a fishing license at any time. Although Indiana residents need no fishing license to fish public waters on Free Fishing Weekend, all other fishing regulations are still in effect.

Check out a new lake or river, or introduce friends and family to a favorite fishing spot. Call your favorite property for details, as listed below. Some properties require advance registration.

Individuals who need reasonable modifications for effective participation in Free Fishing Weekend events at DNR properties should contact the property at least 72 hours before the event or call the DNR ADA Coordinator at (317) 232-4145.
