Get your fishing pole ready for free Texas fishing!

Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) has designated the first Saturday in June annually as a “free fishing day.” Which means, all Texans can fish on any public waterbody in the state without a fishing license on June 6, 2020.

“Free Fishing Day is a wonderful opportunity for anglers to share their knowledge, skills, equipment, and love for fishing with a new participant, yet it’s also more than that,” said Craig Bonds, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department inland fisheries director.

“We hope those trying fishing on this special day will also learn that purchasing a license is an act of conservation. A fishing license purchase is one of the simplest and most effective way people can support fisheries science and management.”

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) wants you to enjoy the outdoors, have some fishing fun and offers multiple resources on where and how to fish on their TPWD Learn to Fish webpage.

Some of the topics include:

-Fishing 101

-Find a Place to Fish close to Home

-Saltwater Fishing from a Pier

-Help the Conservation Effort with your License Purchase

TPWD recommends using their web page if you want learn more about the free fishing day and make note that, “if you plan on fishing in federal waters, keep in mind that a license is needed for the private recreational angler red snapper season opening June 1.”
