If you love fishing or you're already making your summer plans we have the dates for the Free Fishing Weekends for Kentucky & Indiana.

My husband, Joe, has always loved fishing.  He loves going anytime he has a little bit of time on his hands which doesn't happen often.

What Free Fishing Weekend in Kentucky means is that you are not required to have a license or permit to fish.  This means Ky residents and even non-residents are allowed to fish at any waterfront public property.  If you don't have a license and would like to here is how you can get one.

This is the perfect time if you do have young kids to teach them about fishing.

Here is a guide to fishing from the Kentucky Dept. of Fish & Wildlife

If you are looking for a place to fish there are a number of bodies of water all around the Commonwealth.  The list includes over 900 different places you can fish and boat.

If you're taking the kids fishing prepare them before you go.  While at home there are some things you can do with them to get them ready.  Teach them about the fish environment, educate them on the types of fish, have them get the fishing gear and tackle box ready, and teach them to cast and reel right in your front or back year.

There are usually lots of events scheduled for this weekend.  Due to COVID-19 most of these events have been canceled.

Free Fishing Weekend in Kentucky & Indiana is the first weekend in June.  Saturday, June 5, and Sunday, June 6.  Indiana also has a free fishing Sunday on May 2.
