Local Sports in Brief: Free Fishing Day June 1 at Goldwater Lake in Prescott
Local Sports in Brief
Goldwater Lake in Prescott will participate in the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Free Fishing Day from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 1. Each year, Game & Fish sponsors some Free Fishing Day clinics/events to give people the opportunity to see if they like the sport. As part of National Fishing and Boating Week (June 1-9), anglers can fish for free during those four hours, which is ideal for families. Loaner fishing rods, bait and instruction will be provided for free as well. On that Saturday only, no fishing licenses will be required for individuals fishing on any public waters in Arizona. Bag limits and other fishing regulations will remain in full effect, however. Since children younger than age 10 can fish for free all year long in Arizona, Free Fishing Day is a treat for older children and their parents. For more information about fishing licenses, visit: azgfd.com/license/. A General Fishing License costs $37 for residents and $55 for non-residents. Combo Hunt & Fish Licenses cost $57 and Youth Combo Hunt and Fish Licenses are $5. All licenses are valid for one year from the date of purchase. All monies generated from the sale of licenses benefit wildlife conservation.
