Saturday (June 11) is Free Fishing Day, which means any angler — resident or not — can fish without a license.
All other fishing rules remain in effect.
At locations around Southwest Idaho, equipment will be available for use and fishing experts will be available to help.
“Free Fishing Day provides a great opportunity for novices to give fishing a try and perhaps develop it into a life-long pursuit,” Fish and Game regional fish manager Joe Kozfkay said in a press release. “Parents are encouraged to bring their children out for a day of fun fishing excitement.”
