The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is encouraging everyone to get outside and enjoy a day fishing with family or friends on one of Maines many waters.

Free fishing weekend takes place on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, 2019 and any person may fish for free without a license on Maines waterways, except those who have had their license suspended or revoked. All other rules and regulations, including bag and possession limits, apply.

Wondering where to go? Check out the improved Maine fishing guide HERE. The statewide guide features the top fishing destinations in the state, broken down by species, tips on how to catch various species, and even provides advice on how to fish with children. You can even use the Departments Google Earth data layers on your desktop to select your next fishing destination. And if you are wondering about the rules, you can find those HERE.
