TEXAS — The first Saturday in June each year is designated as Free Fishing Day in the state of Texas.

Texans can fish on any public waterbody in the state without a fishing license on June 6, 2020.

“We hope those trying fishing on this special day will also learn that purchasing a license is an act of conservation. A fishing license purchase is one of the simplest and most effective way people can support fisheries science and management,” said Craig Bonds, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department inland fisheries director.

To help celebrate Free Fishing Day, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department offers multiple resources to provide fun, high-quality fishing opportunities to anglers of all skill levels and all ages.
