Mark Your Calendar for 2020 Free Fishing Days

(UNDATED) – This year’s four free fishing days are May 3, June 6-7, and Sept. 26.

Indiana residents do not need a fishing license or a trout stamp to fish in public waters these days.

On all other days, only youth (age 17 and younger) and a few other special anglers are exempt from the license requirement.

If you enjoyed the Free Fishing Days, please consider purchasing a fishing license  so you can fish throughout the entire year (license year is April 1 to March 31 of the following year). License sales fund fisheries management, maintain public access sites, and provide free sport fishing educational programs.
