CHEYENNE– Both residents and nonresidents alike can fish for free with no license required all day in Wyoming on Saturday, June 7.  Free Fishing Day was authorized in 2003 by the Wyoming State Legislature.

On June 7, anglers can fish for free on all waters in Wyoming with the exception that fishing licenses are required in Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Indian Reservation.  All fishing regulations such as creel  and size limits, gear restrictions, fishing hours and stream closures still apply. 

Free Fishing Day is held in conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week and is designed to provide an opportunity for people to get reacquainted with fishing and enjoy Wyoming’s outstanding fishing opportunities.
