It was another successful year for anglers involved in one of the more unique fishing challenges offered by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. (Wyoming Game and Fish Department)

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be celebrating Wyoming’s five-star fisheries this year by allowing, for one day, fishing without a license for free!

Game and Fish invites anglers to celebrate Free Fishing Day on June 3. Each year Game and Fish designates the first Saturday of National Boating and Fishing Week as a free fishing day, when anyone can fish in Wyoming (except within the Wind River Reservation and Yellowstone National Park) without a fishing license. 

All fishing regulations, creel and size limits, gear restrictions and stream closures remain in effect. Anglers can review the 2023 Fishing Regulations online before heading out and can plan their trip with the interactive fishing guide.
