Whether you’re tying on a salmonfly or threading a night crawler onto a hook, on Saturday and Sunday, everyone in Montana can fish for free.

“Montana is home to some of the finest fishing anywhere in the world. It’ll be a great chance to get your family outside.” said Martha Williams, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena.

While the promotion allows anyone to fish without a license on June 17-18, all other fishing rules and regulations are in effect and must be followed.  

Williams encourages all would-be anglers to be aware of boating and water safety on Montana’s rivers and streams, particularly this year as many rivers across the state are still experiencing spring runoff.
