Free Fishing Day
Free Fishing Day is your one chance during the year to get hooked for free! No license or trout stamp is needed for adults or children on this date.
During our annual Free Fishing Day, anglers may fish in any public fishing water in the state without needing a fishing license or trout stamp. All limits and other regulations apply.
Free Fishing Day in Nevada always falls on the second Saturday in June. This year Free Fishing Day will be on June 11, 2016.
