FREE - CA Free Fishing Day - NO license required for Adults &/or Children

  • Sep 8, 2012 · 7:00 AM
Free Fishing Days Free Fishing days for 2012 are July 7 and September 8

Have you ever felt the excitement of watching your bobber suddenly jiggle, then dive out of sight? Or feeling the tap-tap-tap of a bass as it tastes the worm on the end of your line? Or having a salmon practically tear the rod out of your hands as it smashes your lure? What's that? You say you never learned to fish?

If you are new to the sport of fishing, and not sure if you will enjoy it, a great opportunity awaits you. DFG offers two Free Fishing Days each year. On these days, you can fish without a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days provide a great, low-cost way to give fishing a try. Some DFG Regions offer a Fishing in the City program where you can go fishing in the middle of major metropolitan areas perhaps just a few blocks from your home. Fishing in the City and free fishing day clinics are designed to educate novice anglers about fishing ethics, fish habits, effective methods for catching fish, and fishing tackle. You can even learn how to clean and prepare your catch so you can enjoy it for dinner that night.

While all fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect, there are two days each year when anyone can fish without purchasing a fishing license.

    O.K. - we have one individual that "is goin' fishin' - - HE Needs a ride but YOU GET TO FISH - -
    click on his name in the "member section" -
    there's a little envelope -
    you click on it and send an e-mail to him
    do a message here
    You just go and have a great time "tryin" - - -
    and believe me - it's gonna be better (even if you don't catch a fish) than spending the day at the Vet with your "special buddy" -
    She's of a "certain age" - i.e. a "senior dog" - and I really don't
    want her going into surgery - - -

    Thomas - THANKS - for the e-mail _ _ _ __ __ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ My "best buddy" - - has an infected foot - - AND - - we've been doing meds for several weeks - and going to the vet - thinking all would be o.k. - - IF it hasn't healed the vet will do surgery saturday - - either way we have to go again - - -

    I'm not sure about the "group" and "fishing" - I sent several messages for people to respond and show interest - -
    i.e. - - where was convenient to do the event - - - IF they were still planning to attend - equipment - did they have any - - - - were they beginners - - - -

    ABSOLUTELY - NO RESPONSE - - - -NO e-mails
    and usually - - no one or only one or two will show up - - -
    "everyone is interested" - but the day comes and the "no shows"
    just happen -
    OF COURSE - - my dog and her health is my TOP PRIORITY - - and I actually e-mailed everyone several
    times asking for "RESPONSE - INPUT - CONFIRMATION" and again NO RESPONSE - -
