Enjoy a Weekend of Free Fishing Closed Sun & Wed
Ohio is known for its world-class ?shing, and on May 6-7, state residents are invited to take
part in the annual free ?shing weekend, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources
(ODNR). Ohio’s Free Fishing Days are open to all Ohio residents and extend to all of Ohio’s public
waters, including Lake Erie and the Ohio River. This is the only weekend all year that does not
require anyone 16-years-old or older to obtain a ?shing license.
The ODNR Division of Wildlife’s six ?sh hatcheries stocked more than 54 million sport ?sh
in public waters in 2016, including walleye, saugeye, steelhead, rainbow trout, brown trout, mus-
kellunge, channel cat?sh, blue cat?sh and hybrid striped bass, which will provide opportunities for
more than 1.3 million Ohio anglers.
Ohio State Parks is also offering a camping discount during Ohio’s Free Fishing Days. Campers
can receive a 20% off discount May 6-7 by using the promotion code 17ANGLER.
The Free Fishing Days weekend offers Ohioans of all ages the chance to experience the fun of
catching a ?sh. Here are some helpful tips for taking a youngster out ?shing.
• Keep the trip simple by considering a child’s age and skill level.
• Choose a pond, lake or stream where children will be able to easily catch a few ?sh.
• A spin-cast reel is usually the easiest for kids to use.
• Bring a camera and snacks.
• Be patient – plan on spending time untangling lines, baiting hooks, landing ?sh and taking
• Most of all, keep the trip fun.
Anglers 16 years and older are required to have a valid ?shing license to take ?sh, frogs or tur-
tles from Ohio waters when not ?shing on Ohio’s free ?shing weekend. An Ohio resident ?shing
license is only $19 a year for residents. Fishing licenses are available at participating agents and at
The sales of ?shing licenses, along with the Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) program, continue to
fund the ODNR Division of Wildlife’s ?sh management operations. No state tax dollars are used
for these activities. These are user-pay, user-bene?t programs.
The SFR is a partnership between federal and state governments, industry and anglers/boaters.
When anglers purchase rods, reels, ?shing tackle, ?sh ?nder and motor boat fuel, they pay an excise
tax. The federal government collects these taxes and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers
and disburses these funds to state ?sh and wildlife agencies. These funds are used to acquire habitat,
produce and stock ?sh, conduct research and surveys, provide aquatic education and acquire and
develop boat accesses.
