CHEYENNE, WY — If you’re angling for a reason to head outdoors, Free Fishing Day is a perfect excuse. On June 1, anglers don’t need a license to fish on waters throughout Wyoming.
Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as a free fishing day when anyone can fish in Wyoming — Wind River Reservation and Yellowstone National Park excluded — without a fishing license.
All fishing regulations, creel and size limits, gear restrictions and stream closures remain in effect. Anglers can review the regulations online before heading out.
“Free Fishing Day is a great time to kick off summer fishing. Take the opportunity to celebrate this special week by going fishing with family and friends,” said Alan Osterland, Game and Fish chief of fisheries. “If you don’t know how to fish, there will be local events statewide to teach you how.”
