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.”
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.
