(WEHT) – June 6th-7th is Free Fishing Weekend for Indiana residents, who will not need a license to fish public Hoosier waters on those days.
The weekend kicks off National Fishing and Boating Week, which is June 6-14. The week is a national celebration that highlights the importance of recreational boating and fishing.
For public fishing areas and access sites, see on.IN.gov/where2fish.
Some urban parks were also stocked with catchable-size channel catfish recently — see wildlife.IN.gov/7508.htm for a list of those sites.
When fishing or doing any other activity, Hoosiers should follow posted restrictions and practice social distancing. Your fishing rod is a measure of appropriate social distance.
