Go fish — legally — without a license. Free Fishing Weekend is June 7-8.

During those days, no license will be required to fish or gather shellfish in any waters open to fishing in Washington state.

Also, no vehicle access pass or Discover Pass will be required during Free Fishing Weekend to park at any of the nearly 700 water-access sites maintained by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“Free Fishing Weekend is a great time to try fishing in Washington, whether you are new to the sport, have not taken up a rod and reel in years, or want to introduce a friend or young family member to the sport,” Chris Donley, WDFW inland fish program manager, said in a news release.
