Indiana Free Fishing Day

September 26, 2020 all-day

Indiana residents do not need a fishing license or a trout/salmon stamp to fish the state’s public waters on Free Fishing Days.

On all other days, only youth (age 17 and younger) and a few other special anglers  are exempt from the license requirement.

Buy a Fishing License

If you enjoyed the Free Fishing Days, please consider purchasing a fishing license  so you can fish throughout the entire year (license year is April 1 to March 31 of the following year). License sales fund fisheries management, maintain public access sites, and provide free sport fishing educational programs.
