Saturday is Indiana's first 'Free Fishing Day'

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) - Saturday, April 20, is the first of four Indiana Free Fishing Days this year.

Hoosier adults can fish public waters without a fishing license or a trout stamp that day. Children 17 and younger do not need a license on any day.
