ALABAMA'S FREE FISHING DAY SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 9

Alabamians can fish for free in most state waters June 9 as part of Free Fishing Day.

In recognition of National Fishing and Boating Week, Alabamians can fish for free in most state waters June 9.

Approved by the Alabama Legislature, Free Fishing Day allows residents and non-residents to fish without a license. 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.

Stan Cook, fisheries section chief for the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries, said the event allows seasoned anglers and newcomers a chance to enjoy spending quality time with friends and family in the outdoors.

“Fishing is a gateway activity that can inspire a life-long love of nature,” said Cook.

Anglers can visit www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/where/ to find a great fishing spot for Free Fishing Day. For more information, email Assistant Chief of Fisheries Nick Nichols at nick.nichols@dcnr.alabama.gov.

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.
