Cheyenne - It’s hardly a secret that Wyoming fishing is top-notch, especially with 10 blue-ribbon trout fisheries across the state. But, the first Saturday in June the fishing gets a little better — because it’s free.

On June 2, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department invites anglers to discover a new place to fish, cast a line in a favorite water or join us at a family fishing event for Free Fishing Day. Each year, the Game and Fish designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as a free fishing day when anyone can fish in Wyoming -- Wind River Reservation and Yellowstone National Park excluded --  without a fishing license. All fishing regulations, creel and size limits, gear restrictions, and stream closures remain in effect. Anglers can review the regulations online before heading out.

“Free Fishing Day is a great time to kick off summer fishing. Take the opportunity to celebrate this special week by going fishing with family and friends,” said Alan Osterland, Game and Fish chief of fisheries. “If you don’t know how to fish, there will be local events statewide to teach you how.”

Free Fishing Day events take place around the state. Follow the Game and Fish Facebook page for more details. Share stories and photos of your smiles, catches (and misses) on social media with #fish2018.
