SATURDAY IS FREE FISHING DAY IN ALABAMA

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabamians will have the opportunity to fish for free in most state waters Saturday as Free Fishing Day launches National Fishing and Boating Week which runs through June 14. Approved by the Alabama Legislature, Free Fishing Day allows residents and non-residents to fish without a fishing license for a day.

The fishing license exemption on Free Fishing Day does not affect some lakes that may still require fees and permits. Fishing in a private pond requires the pond owner's permission.

"Fishing is a gateway activity that can inspire a life-long love of nature," said Stan Cook, Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Section Chief. "Free Fishing Day allows seasoned anglers and newcomers to fishing the chance to recharge by spending quality time with friends and family in the outdoors."

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama's natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
