Maryland to offer license-free fishing days in June and July
The Mar yland Depar tment of Natural Resources (DNR) invites new or experienced anglers to enjoy Maryland’s License Free Fishing Days on Saturdays, June 2 and 9, and on Wednesday, July 4.
This is an opportunity for Marylanders to test their fishing skills without the need to obtain a fishing license, trout stamp or registration, DNR officials note.
“Free fishing days are the perfect opportunity to give the sport a try before deciding whether to get a license,” Fishing and Boating Services Director David Blazer said. “Fishing is open from the surf of the Atlantic Ocean to the mountain streams of Western Maryland.”
All anglers must follow current size and catch limits. An online guide is available at www.eregulations.com/ maryland/fishing/ and a printed version can picked up at many ser vice centers or local bait-and-tackle shops. The department also has dozens of other resources to help new or experienced anglers, including angler access maps, Click Before You Cast and fish identification charts.
Anglers who decide to get or renew their license can do so online, by phone or at a licensing and registration service center.
