FREE Fishing This Weekend!

Regardless of who you are, everybody in Montana has the opportunity to enjoy some FREE FISHING this weekend!

“It’s a celebration of fishing and of taking advantage of Montana’s great outdoors, so grab a pole and get outside,” said Jeff Hagener, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena. “While it’s also a celebration of Father’s day, these two free fishing days provide everyone opportunity to get out and enjoy Montana’s great fishing.”

Free Fishing While Following Rules and Regulations

So, to summarize, you do NOT need a fishing license on June 18-19 this year, BUT all fishing regulations are in effect and must be followed!

FWP also reminds all boaters to stop at the inspection stations–it is very important!

So, take advantage of free fishing this Father’s Day weekend, and don’t forget to get your license, if you haven’t already, for Monday!  For more information on Montana fishing and boating regulations, visit Montana FWP’s website.
