Colorado's free fishing weekend is June 7-8

Colorado's Free Fishing Weekend is scheduled for June 7-8. Anglers of all ages can fish without a license anywhere in the state that weekend.

Many states allow free fishing during one or two weekends each year in an effort to encourage more people to discover and enjoy one of the most popular of all outdoor activities. According to a recent survey by Southwick Associates, fishing is not only a popular recreational activity in Colorado, it is a major economic driver for the state, contributing over $1.9 billion each year to Colorado's economy.

From reservoirs, lakes and ponds to rivers and high-altitude streams, Colorado is a highly regarded fishing destination. The state features nearly 9,000 miles of trout streams, 321 miles of which are designated Gold Medal waters and managed for high-quality fishing.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds the public that although a license is not required that weekend, all other rules and regulations will apply. Anglers should consult the 2014 Colorado Fishing Brochure for specific regulations and restrictions for the waters they'll be fishing.
