Free Fishing Weekend in Colorado June 4-5, 2016

Free Fishing Weekend

Saturday, June 04: All day event

Statewide Free Fishing Weekend June 4 & 5, 2016. A fishing license is not required this weekend.


​Colorado residents and state visitors will have the opportunity to fish without a license on June 4 & 5 as part of the annual “Colorado’s Free Fishing Days.”

The free fishing days are set aside each year for the first full weekend in June as part of ongoing efforts by Colorado Parks & Wildlife to introduce people to the sport of fishing.

During the free fishing days, anglers may fish without licenses. However, normal bag limits, possession limits and regulations will remain in effect. For more information on state fishing regulations, participants should consult the Colorado Fishing Brochure.

The CPW’s weekly Colorado fishing report​ has a list of where interested parties can take advantage of the free fishing days. The report contains angling information on bodies of water across the state, a list of recently stocked waters, weekly hotspots, and techniques that have proven successful for the state’s most productive lakes, reservoirs, streams and ponds.


Audience: All Ages
