Free Fishing Day is coming


Free Fishing Day, when residents and out-of-state visitors can fish for free in most public waters, whether fresh or saltwater, will be Saturday, June 11. On this day, no fishing license will be required to fish in most public waters in Alabama. However, some piers and state public fishing lakes will still require a permit, and fishing for red snapper will still require a $10 Gulf Reef Fish Endorsement and saltwater angler registration, which is free.
