The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is inviting anglers to participate in Free Fishing Day tomorrow, June 4.

Held every year on the first Saturday of National Fishing and Boating Week, the event allows anyone to fish in Wyoming -- excluding the Wind River Indian Reservation and Yellowstone National Park -- without a license.

"Free Fishing Day is a great time to kick off summer fishing or take up fishing as a new hobby,” said Dirk Miller, Deputy Chief of Fisheries.

“If you need some tips to start off, head to the Game and Fish YouTube page for how-to videos," added Miller.

All fishing regulations, creel and size limits, gear restrictions, and stream closures remain in effect.
