North Dakotans who want to give fishing a try are reminded they can fish for free June 1-2.
That is the state’s Free Fishing Weekend, when all residents age 16 and over can fish any North Dakota water without a license. Residents age 15 and under do not need a fishing license at any time of year.
Fishing regulations and information on fishing waters is available on the Game and Fish website at gf.nd.gov, and in the current regulations guide available at license vendor locations.
This weekend (June 1-2) is North Dakota’s Free Fishing Weekend. During those two days, all North Dakota residents can fish any state water without a license. Anglers, share your love of fishing by taking a neighbor, a friend, or handful of kids to a nearby water. Introduce them to a slice of North Dakota’s wonderful natural resources that may be common to you, but often overlooked by them.
