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.

State Parks are also hosting Free Fishing Day events.

Specific information about all Free Fishing Day events can be found at
