Everyone is encouraged to cast a line and enjoy Maine’s many waterways this Saturday and Sunday (June 1 & 2) with another Maine Free Fishing Weekend. Whether you haven’t fished in years, since you were a kid, or you want to try something new, cast a line this weekend.

During Free Fishing Weekend, any person including both residents and non-residents (except those whose license has been suspended or revoked) may fish without a license. All other laws and rules apply on these days.

It’s the perfect opportunity to spend time outside and enjoy an activity you may not have made time for in several years. If you’ve never been fishing before, grab a pole and check out this fishing guide full of tips and information for you to get started.
