Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity to try out fishing for the first time. Or, if you're willing to travel, to partake of fishing in another state without having to purchase a license. Some states may have certain restrictions. For example, you might be able to fish freshwater for free, but still have to buy a saltwater permit or trout permit. So please check before making plans.
For 2022, Louisiana's free fishing days are Saturday-Sunday, June 11-12. Here are the free fishing days for neighboring states:
Alabama - June 11
