Fish without a license, courtesy CDFW

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) encourages all Californians to give fishing a try for free this Saturday, Sept. 6. This is the second of two Free Fishing Days in 2014, when people can fish without having to buy a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days also provide an easy opportunity for licensed anglers to introduce non-angling friends and children to fishing and the outdoors.

 

All fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements and fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect. Every angler must have an appropriate report card if they are fishing for steelhead, sturgeon or abalone anywhere in the state, or salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity river systems.

 

Anglers should check the rules and regulations at www.wildlife.ca.gov/regulations/ for the waters they plan to fish because wildlife officers will be on duty to enforce them.
