Fort Myers Beach License-Free Fishing Day


Saturday April 7, 2012 is designated as a license-free fishing day throughout the state of Florida in fresh waters.

That means that people of all ages can cast their lines into 3 million acres of lakes, ponds and reservoirs and 12,000 miles of fishable rivers, streams and canals.   There are four days a year that are dedicated to license-free fishing.  This allows people to get out on the water and try their hand at fishing without having to get a license to do so.  These dates are set by The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Other dates this year include:

June 2, 2012 – License-free saltwater fishing day

September 1, 2012 – License-free saltwater fishing day

June 9, 2012 –  License-free freshwater fishing day
