California Outdoors Q&A

Are there free fishing days designated for 2020? 


       Have you decided which 2020 days will be designated as Free Fishing Days? (Jim)


       Yes! Next year, California’s Free Fishing Days will be Saturday, July 4 and Saturday, Sept. 5. On those days, anyone can fish without a sport fishing license. All fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect, and every angler must have the appropriate report card if they are fishing for steelhead, sturgeon or salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity River systems. It’s a great time to introduce a friend or family member to the sport of fishing!
