Anglers across the state can fish on Father’s Day weekend whether they’ve had a chance to purchase a license or not. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is opening up the state’s waterways to encourage families to enjoy time outdoors.

The promotion runs June 16 and 17. All other fishing rules and regulations will remain in effect, according to a news release from FWP.

From the release:

“Montana is home to some of the finest fishing anywhere in the world. It’ll be a great chance to get your family outside.” said Martha Williams, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena.

While the promotion allows anyone to fish without a license on June 16-17, all other fishing rules and regulations are in effect and must be followed.

Williams encourages all would-be anglers to be aware of boating and water safety on Montana’s rivers and streams, particularly this year as many rivers across the state are still experiencing spring runoff and flood conditions. Additionally, she reminds those with watercraft of any kind to remember to stop at all AIS inspection stations.
