Free Fishing Day

#1
Free Fishing Days for 2020 are Saturday, July 4 and Saturday, Sept. 5.

As posted from the DFG website!!

If you are new to the sport of fishing, and not sure if you will enjoy it, a great opportunity awaits you. CDFW offers two Free Fishing Days each year. On these days, you can fish without a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days provide a great, low-cost way to give fishing a try. Some CDFW Regions offer a Fishing in the City program where you can go fishing in the middle of major metropolitan areas perhaps just a few blocks from your home. Fishing in the City and free fishing day clinics are designed to educate novice anglers about fishing ethics, fish habits, effective methods for catching fish, and fishing tackle. You can even learn how to clean and prepare your catch so you can enjoy it for dinner that night.
While all fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect, there are two days each year when anyone can fish without purchasing a fishing license.
On Free Fishing Days, 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.
ENJOY

I don't think I would want to be going out on a crowded boat out of the So. Cal. area right now. For L. A. County the total confirmed COVID cases, since the beginning, is about 1% of the population. Some have recovered, and some have died, but most of those cases are recent. It is getting dangerous out there for people crowding together.
