FWC: It's license-free freshwater fishing weekend in Florida
Cast a line into rivers and lakes without a license June 8 and 9
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – No fishing license, no worries -- at least for this weekend.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says you're open to fish without a permit in any of the Sunshine state's public lakes and rivers on Saturday and Sunday.
According to FWC, license-free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for those who don't yet have a fishing license to experience fishing, take youth fishing, or for avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing without having to purchase a license.
Every second consecutive Saturday and Sunday in June, the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers, including both residents and non-residents.
Last weekend, saltwater bodies were open to license-free fishing.
