The National Free Fishing Days for 2018 have been released! Most states offer free fishing and boating days every year. That means you can fish without a license. Fishing licenses and boat permit fees can get pricey. This is a great way to save money on a family activity.
A one day fishing license in California is over $15 and a one day boating permit on Big Bear Lake, CA is $25. That adds up to at least $40. We love to fish and take our boat out at least once a week. We’re so blessed to live in one of the most beautiful areas of Big Bear Lake, CA. We buy yearly fishing passes because we fish so often.
Pictured above is my son with a rainbow trout we caught last weekend. We have so much fun fishing as a family. Kids can fish for free until they are 16 years old. Anyone over 16 years old needs a fishing license.
Every year each state gets specific days that allow you to fish and boat free of charge. The California free fishing days are 7/8/18 and 9/1/18. Depending on where you are located, you may be able to fish for free. Click this National Free Fishing Days link to check out your state’s designated dates!
