Families can take a free test drive of fishing fun during the first weekend of June.
Kentucky celebrates free fishing weekend across the state June 1-2. It’s been an annual event since at least 1992.
Moms, dads, grandparents, extended family and out-of-state visitors all can sample Kentucky’s fishing opportunities without having to buy a license or permit during this weekend. Size and creel limits on the number of fish that angles may keep still apply, however. Anglers may keep trout without possessing a trout permit during free fishing weekend.
