Saturday, July 2, 2022, is the first of two Free Fishing Days in California.
You can fish throughout California without a fishing license. According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife it's an opportunity to explore a new hobby. Free Fishing Day is also a time for people who used to fish to come back to that activity. All fishing regulations such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions are in affect except the need for the need of the license. Fish and Wildlife regulations can be reviewed on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
