Wyoming Free Fishing Day Is Almost Here
Free Fishing Day coming Saturday, June 3rd.
That's not far away.
You can celebrate Wyoming’s five-star fisheries this year by fishing without a license for this one day a year.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department invites all anglers to celebrate Free Fishing Day on June 3.
Each year at this time the Wyoming Game and Fish designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as a free fishing day for everyone.
The only exception is within the Wind River Reservation and Yellowstone National Park — without a fishing license.
Just remember that it is not a TOLTAL free for all.
Wyoming fishing regulations, creel and size limits, gear restrictions, and stream closures remain in effect.
You might want to look up the 2023 Fishing Regulations online before you go.
There are many family fishing events throughout the state beginning on Free Fishing Day.
You can find a list of those events at this link.
