HAGERMAN, Idaho (KLIX) – Grab your tackle box, Free Fishing Day is coming up in Idaho.

Free Fishing Day in Idaho is June 9 – and not just for those who have rods and reels and gear. For those who don’t, no worries – they can still enjoy free fishing. On that day, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game will bring its Take Me Fishing trailers to a few places in the region.

  • Freedom Park Pond (8 a.m.-noon
  • Gavers Lagoon (9 a.m.-noon)
  • Hagerman WMA, Riley Creek Pond (9 a.m.-3 p.m.)

The department will stock trout in select locations before the event to increase anglers’ chances of landing a fish, the department said in a news release. To find what have been stocked lately, visit this fish stocking page.

Fish and Game reminds anglers:

Free Fishing Day and Take Me Fishing trailers are great opportunities to learn firsthand why fishing is one of Idaho’s favorite activities, and a fun way to spend time with your family and learn how to catch your own dinner. While Free Fishing Day temporarily waives the requirement for a fishing license, all other rules, such as bag limits and other restrictions, still apply.
