I can’t fish worth a darn. I think the fish smell me coming.  That’s why I usually only fish once a year, on Free Fishing Weekend. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting fishermen of all ages to participate in its annual Free Fishing Weekend, June 1st & 2nd.  

Each year, the first weekend in June is designated as the only two-day period that you are not required to have a fishing license in Colorado. For the rest of the year a fishing license is required for anyone 16 years and older.

While fishing licenses are not required during free fishing weekend, all other regulations remain in effect. Consult the 2013 Colorado Fishing brochure for specific regulations and restrictions for the waters where you will be fishing.

Fishing licenses can be purchased at any Colorado Parks and Wildlife office or from one of the more than 600 license agents across the state.  Licenses can also be purchased online. Anglers may also purchase a fishing license over the phone by calling 800-244-5613.
