INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Hoosiers without a fishing license won’t need one to go fishing tomorrow at the state’s public-owned lakes and rivers.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says residents can go fishing April on Saturday, May 19 without a fishing license or a trout stamp.

It is the second time this year that the DNR has hosted a free fishing day. There are two more free fishing days on June 2 – 3.

Children ages 17 and younger do not need a license on any day.

There will also be several fishing workshops throughout the state tomorrow. The DNR says families will learn a little fish biology, gain some basic fishing skills, and get to go fishing at the park’s lake or pond.
