If you don’t have weekend plans, let’s make some! It’s Free Fishing Weekend in Colorado!!

The fish are starting to bite at waters all around the state. To give everyone an opportunity to get out and get some hits, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is inviting resident and nonresident anglers of all ages to participate in its annual Free Fishing Weekend on June 3rd and 4th. That means you do NOT need a license to fish.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds the public that although a license or Habitat Stamp is not required on Free Fishing Weekend, but all other rules and regulations will apply. Anglers should consult the ​Colorado Fishing Brochure​​​​​ for specific regulations and restrictions.

Fishing licenses can be purchased at an​​y Colorado Parks and Wildlife office or from one of the more than 600 sales agents across the state. Licenses can also be purchased online. Anglers may also purchase a fishing license over the phone by calling 1-800-244-5613. Find information about purchasing a lic​ense online or for more information on fishing.

Last year over one million fishing licenses were sold in Colorado. The sale of fishing licenses allows CPW to maintain and conserve fish habitat that promotes better fishing in Colorado.​
