Free Fishing Without a License

Sadly, I just missed it for Ohio, but did you know that many states have at least one day a year when the need for a license is suspended, and you can fish in public waters for free?  An organization called the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation has a full list of free fishing days in various states for the current year. Often, it coincides with National Fishing and Boating Week in early June, but not only.

For veterans, many states offer free or discounted hunting and fishing licenses.  To find out if your state is one, check this state benefit page at and look at the "recreational" benefits.
