Free Fish­ing Day Of­fered

The Oakdale Leader - - SPORTS -

The Cal­i­for­nia Depart­ment of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is en­cour­ag­ing all Cal­i­for­ni­ans to give fish­ing a try for free on Satur­day, Sept. 1.

CDFW an­nu­ally of­fers two Free Fish­ing Days, typ­i­cally around the Fourth of July and La­bor Day week­ends (the first in 2018 was held July 7). On these two des­ig­nated days, peo­ple can fish with­out hav­ing to buy a sport fish­ing li­cense. Free Fish­ing Days also pro­vide an easy op­por­tu­nity for li­censed an­glers to in­tro­duce non-angling friends and chil­dren to fish­ing and the out­doors.

All fish­ing reg­u­la­tions, such as bag and size lim­its, gear re­stric­tions, re­port card re­quire­ments and fish­ing hours and stream clo­sures, re­main in ef­fect. Every an­gler must have an ap­pro­pri­ate re­port card if they are fish­ing for steel­head, stur­geon or spiny lob­ster any­where in the state, or for salmon in the Smith and Kla­math-Trin­ity river sys­tems.
