(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) – This June, Keep Florida Fishing invites anglers to participate in two weekends of license-free fishing days in Florida, taking place on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 for saltwater fishing, and Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 for freshwater fishing. Eight total license-free fishing days are offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) each year.
“With two license-free fishing weekends, June is a great time to get out and enjoy the water with a young angler,” said Gary Jennings, director of Keep Florida Fishing. “We appreciate FWC showing their support of the fishing and boating communities through license-free fishing days.”
“Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World, and our beautiful rivers, lakes and ponds are the perfect backdrop for a fishing trip with family and friends,” said Kellie Ralston, Southeast Fisheries Policy Director of the American Sportfishing Association. “We hope FWC’s license-free fishing weekends inspire avid anglers to introduce a friend or family member to the love of fishing, without having to first purchase a fishing license.”
