Freshwater license-free fishing this weekend

This weekend, you can fish without a freshwater recreational license.

Gov. Rick Scott announced on Thursday the requirement for a freshwater license would be relaxed on April 1 and 2. All bag limits, seasons, and size restrictions will still apply.

Gov. Scott said, “This weekend’s license-free fishing days are a great chance for families and visitors to enjoy the spring weather and experience the many fishing sites Florida is well known for. Florida is proud to be the Fishing Capital of the World, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of the license-free days this weekend.”

This year, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Florida's Wildlife Management Area system - covering nearly 6 million acres of lands managed as a habitat for wildlife and for people to enjoy fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing and more.
