Name: Free Fishing Day - July 7, 2018
Date: July 7, 2018
Event Description:
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) encourages all Californians to give fishing a try for free on July 7 and Sept. 1.  Free for everyone, not just kids. 

On these two days, people can fish without having to buy a sport fishing license. 
Who wouldn't want to fish free on beautiful Clear Lake?!



CDFW annually offers two Free Fishing Days, typically around the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends.  Free Fishing Days also provide an easy opportunity for licensed anglers to introduce non-angling friends and children to fishing and the outdoors.

All fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements and fishing hours and stream closures, remain in effect. Every angler must have an appropriate report card if they are fishing for steelhead, sturgeon, spiny lobster or abalone anywhere in the state, or for salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity river systems.

All anglers should also check the rules and regulations at www.wildlife.ca.gov/regulations for the waters they plan to fish because wildlife officers will be on duty to enforce them. In addition, information on fish planting is available at https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/fishplants and a fishing guide can be viewed at www.wildlife.ca.gov/fishing/guide
