Free Fishing Weekend slated for June 6, 7

Free Fishing Weekend slated for June 6, 7

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries invites Louisiana residents and non-residents of all ages to fish for free the first weekend in June without a fishing license on any of the state’s public waters.

Louisiana offers miles of shoreline and a myriad of freshwater lakes, marsh, and bayous to take opportunity of during this annual event.

The Department hopes the weekend will introduce newcomers, visitors and people with rusty skills to one of Louisiana’s most popular sports. If you already have a fishing license, consider taking a friend or family member who has never been fishing.

Anglers are allowed to fish on all public bodies of waters without a license, but all fishing regulations still apply.

In conjunction with Free Fishing Weekend, LDWF works with supporting sponsors to offer fishing-related events throughout the state.
