Fishing for Free June 4-5


‹North Dakotans who want to give fishing a try are reminded they can fish for freeJune 4-5.

That is the state's Free Fishing Weekend, when all residents age 16 and over can fish any North Dakota water without a license. Residents age 15 and under do not need a fishing license at any time of year.

'It's a great chance for people who may be new to fishing, to give it a try,' said Greg Power, fisheries chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. 'There are lots of diverse, quality fishing opportunities scattered across the state.'

Fishing regulations and information on fishing waters  is available on the Game and Fish website at, and in the current regulations guide available at license vendor locations.
