Free fishing days June 3-4

The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission approved a resolution to designate June 3-4 as Free Fishing Days in Oklahoma. Oklahoma was the first state in the nation to offer free fishing days 24 years ago and has since been followed by dozens of other states that have established similar free fishing days.

"Free fishing days are a great opportunity to introduce family and friends to fishing," said David Warren, information and education chief for the Wildlife Department.

Resident and non-resident fishing licenses (including trout licenses and fishing and hunting legacy permits) are not required on the free fishing days, although anglers should note that local or municipal permits might be required on those days. Texoma Lake anglers should be aware that the Texas free fishing day is June 3 only. Anglers must also follow all other fishing regulations.

    I would love to take advantage of Free Fishing days IF it was planned as a weekend event. It's dissappointing that it was not scheduled where more people could get hooked on fishing again by this promotion.
