Free fishing days available for Maryland residents – WBAL Baltimore

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is hosting free fishing days for residents.

The free fishing days on Saturday and July 4 allow residents the opportunity to fish the state’s waters without obtaining a fishing license, stamp or registration.

“Maryland has a wealth of public fishing waters, where anglers can catch anything from cold-water trout and striped bass to tasty white perch and more than 60 other species,” fishing and boating services director David Blazer said. “Free fishing days are a great way for any Marylander to learn or rediscover the sport.”

Anglers must adhere to size and catch limits. Convenient fishing spots can be found on the department’s free mobile app and the Angler’s Access map.

There are nearly two dozen license-free fishing areas throughout the state, where anglers can access prime fishing areas with a free angler registration. Any angler under the age of 16 is not required to have a fishing license.
