MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — On Saturday, June 8, Alabamians and visitors alike will have the opportunity to fish for free in most public waters, including both freshwater and saltwater.
Free Fishing Day is part of National Fishing and Boating Week, which runs June 1-9. Free Fishing Day allows residents and non-residents to enjoy fishing opportunities in Alabama without having to purchase a fishing license.
The fishing license exemption on Free Fishing Day does not affect some lakes and piers that may still require fees and permits. Fishing in a private pond requires the pond owner’s permission. Anglers can visit www.outdooralabama.com/fishing to find a fishing spot for Free Fishing Day.
