Kids Fishing Day June 1

Lions Club invites little anglers to try their luck—no license required


Anyone wanting to give Wyoming fishing a try are reminded that Wyoming free fishing day is Saturday, June 1. On that day no license is required for both residents and nonresidents. 

The Saratoga Lions Club and the Saratoga National Fish Hatchery would like to invite families to bring their children fishing at the annual Saratoga Kid’s Fishing Day starting at 8 a.m. on June 1 at the Saratoga Hot Springs Resort pond on Texas Trail Road. Prizes, provided by several sponsors, will be given and hamburgers and hotdog lunches will be provided by the Lions Club. Participants should bring their own poles, tackle and bait.

Brown Trout are to be stocked in the ponds prior to the event to provide good angling opportunities for children who attend Kids Fishing Day.

Free Fishing Day (June 1, 2019) applies to all waters in Wyoming (with the exceptions of Yellowstone fishing licenses being required in Yellowstone National Park and Wind River Indian Reservation fishing licenses being required when fishing on waters within the reservation).

While fishing is free on that day, anglers are reminded that all rules and regulations in the fishing regulations pamphlet still apply.

Free Fishing Day was authorized in 2003 by the Wyoming Legislature. Each year the Wyoming Game and Fish Department designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as the day where anyone can fish in Wyoming without a fishing license. Free fishing day is designed to provide an opportunity for people to get reacquainted with fishing and enjoy the outstanding fishing opportunity found in Wyoming.
