June 9 Is Free Fishing Day In Utah

You won’t need a license to fish in Utah on Saturday, June 9, which is designated Free Fishing Day.

"Fishing is an activity that everyone in your family can enjoy," says Roger Wilson, coldwater fisheries coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "We offer Free Fishing Day every year to attract people to an activity that can make the time they spend in the outdoors even more rewarding."

In preparation for Free Fishing Day, DWR personnel will stock extra fish into waters across the state. Wilson says most of the fish will be placed in lakes and reservoirs.

Wilson reminds anglers that while they don't need a license to fish on June 9, all of the other regulations in the 2007 Utah Fishing Guide will still be in effect. Anglers, especially those who might be fishing for the first time, are encouraged to obtain a copy of the guide and learn the rules.

Guides are available at the DWR's Web site ( and from fishing license agents and DWR offices.

DWR biologists and volunteers will staff clinics at various waters to help kids learn to fish. Other activities are scheduled statewide.

See the DWR’s full news release for more details.
