INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources shares that May 3 is the first of four ‘Free Fishing Days’ in the state.

On Free Fishing Days, Indiana residents can fish the state’s public waters without a fishing license or trout/salmon stamp.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources suggests that families visit a local park, state forest, fish & wildlife area or state recreation area for fishing opportunities.

For public places to fish, here’s a ‘Where to Fish’ map.

You can also find nearby urban water with catchable-size channel fish by clicking here.  In Evansville, you can find catfish or rainbow trout at Diamond Valley Lake in Diamond Valley Park, and at Garvin Park Lake in Garvin Park.

This year’s remaining Free Fishing Days are June 6-7 and Sept. 26.
