California's free fishing day happens this Saturday

It's California's turn! This Saturday, fishing on California's bodies of water is free.

Posted: Aug 30, 2019 4:09 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — If you're a fishing enthusiast or looking to try it out, take note: Saturday is a "Free Fishing Day" for the state of California, one of only two days in the entirety of 2019.

"If you are new to the sport of fishing, and not sure if you will enjoy it, a great opportunity awaits you. CDFW offers two Free Fishing Days each year," the California Department of Fish & Wildlife said. "On these days, you can fish without a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days provide a great, low-cost way to give fishing a try."

All other fishing regulations — such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours, and stream closures — still apply, but you won't have to buy a license.

If you're fishing for steelhead or sturgeon, or if you're salmon fishing in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity River Systems, you'll still need to have the right report card.

California's other 2019 Free Fishing Day happened on July 6, so this will be your last chance until next year. Oregon just had a Free Fishing Weekend earlier in August, and will have one more this year after Thanksgiving.
