May 6, 2016 – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Free Recreational Fishing Days will be held June 11-12. Both Louisiana residents and non- residents will be allowed to fish without a license on any of the state’s public waters during that weekend.
Louisiana offers miles of shoreline and a myriad of freshwater lakes, marsh and bayous to take opportunity of during this annual event.
LDWF hopes the weekend will introduce newcomers, visitors and people who haven’t fished in a while 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.
