You can fish for free in Wyoming on June 1

There aren’t many things in life you can get for free, except June 1st in Wyoming. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Free Fishing Day waives all fishing fees for one day and even offers free fishing day events to get kids started.

Free Fishing Day does not apply to the waters in the National Parks or the Wind River Reservation. All fishing regulations, creel and size limits, fishing gear restrictions and stream closures remain in effect.

State parks throughout Wyoming also participate in Free Fishing Day.

Every year, the first Saturday in June is Free Fishing Day in the Cowboy State, allowing families to try their hand at fishing without the need for a fishing license. If you didn’t know, everyone over the age of 14 must purchase a fishing license and conservation stamp in Wyoming. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has all fishing regulations online on their website, WGFD.WYO.GOV

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as a free fishing day when anyone in Wyoming can fish without a fishing license. National Boating and Fishing Week is a celebration that highlights the importance of recreational boating and fishing in improving the quality of life and preserving our nation’s national beauty.

Also remember that if you are using a boat, canoe, kayak or other floating device, you must obtain an AIS sticker and inspection before launching your watercraft in Wyoming waters.
