Interested in trying ice fishing for the first time?
Next week is Free Fishing License Week (Feb. 13-21) in Maine. During the week anyone (except those whose license has been suspended or revoked) who registers with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife may fish without a license.
All other laws and regulations apply on these days. Nonresidents and residents may participate.
If you plan to participate in the Free Fishing License Week you must register online right here.
Ages 15 and younger do not need to register.
