The 2003 Wyoming Legislature approved the creation of an annual Wyoming Free Fishing Day, to be designated by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission, as part of the National Fishing and Boating Week.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission has declared June 2, 2012 and June 1, 2013 Free Fishing Days to coincide with the beginning of the National Fishing and Boating week. Residents and nonresidents may fish Wyoming waters (excluding Wind River Indian Reservation and Yellowstone National Park, which are not regulated by the State of Wyoming) without a fishing license or conservation stamp.
Many communities and groups offer fun public activities on this day. As specific activities are scheduled, we will add them to our calendar below.
Plan your family reunion for June, and add fishing to the festivities. Nonresidents won't need to get a license!
All other fishing regulations and limits apply, so anglers are encouraged to consult the fishing regulations booklet.
