National Fishing and Boating Week is a national celebration, an event that highlights the importance of recreational boating and fishing. National Fishing and Boating Week will take place June 1-9, 2019.
During National Fishing and Boating Week, most states offer free fishing days. These are days where anglers are allowed to fish on public bodies of water without a fishing license. Check out the upcoming free fishing days in your state.
Some states will also offer free fishing on National Hunting and Fishing Day as well as National Fishing Day. These events are celebrated annually, so mark your calendar.
