Free Fishing Day Saturday July 7

Big Bear Lake, CA, July 5, 2012, noon - The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) invites anglers to celebrate summer with free fishing this  Saturday in California. July 7 is the first of two Free Fishing Days this year, when people can try their hand at fishing without having to buy 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. DFG offers two Free Fishing Days each year – usually around the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekend – when it’s legal to fish without a sport fishing license. This year, the Free Fishing Days were set for the Saturdays that follow Independence Day and Labor Day (July 7 and Sept. 8). Free Fishing Days provide a low-cost way to give fishing a try. Some DFG Regions offer a Fishing in the City program where anglers can go fishing in major metropolitan areas. 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. Anglers can even learn how to clean and prepare fish for eating. For more information on Free Fishing Days, visit the Department of Fish and Game’s website.
