Montanans can fish for FREE this Saturday and Sunday in celebration of Father's Day weekend, June 20 - 21!

Over Father's Day weekend, everyone in Montana can fish for free...and without a license! Gov. Steve Bullock would like everyone to just remember that you must follow all of Montana's other fishing regulations. Gov. Bullock also said, quote,

While many Montana anglers want to keep their favorite fishing hole a secret, one thing that isn’t a secret is that our state is home to some of the best rivers, lakes, and streams for fishing in the world. I encourage Montanans to take advantage of this free fishing weekend, and maybe even show off their secret fishing spot to a child or grandchild.

The state's "fish for free" weekend was established in 2011 as the state's Father's Day gift to dads everywhere. For water and boating safety tips, visit
