Free fishing day June 4
Wednesday, June 1, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Each year, on the first Saturday of June, anyone can fish on any public waterway without a license. This year, Free Fishing Day falls on June 4. “Free Fishing Day is a wonderful opportunity for anglers to share their knowledge, skills, equipment, and love for fishing with a new participant, yet it’s also more than that,” said Craig Bonds, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department inland fisheries director, in a statement to the press. “We hope those trying fishing on this special day will also learn that purchasing a license is an act of conservation. A fishing license purchase is one of the simplest and most effective ways people can support fisheries science and management.” More information about the state holiday can be found at TakeMeFishing.org. TPWD also has a number of resources aimed at fishing, including a primer on the basics of fishing, a lake finder and a river finder.
