Free Fishing Day Set for June 4
Texas is one of the best places in the nation for fishing and on June 4, you can wet a line anywhere in the state for free.
As part of Celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week, on Saturday June 4 local residents and visitors alike will be able to fish anywhere in Texas without a license. However, normal regulations concerning catch size and quantity still apply.
The annual national event is coordinated by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and coincides with the TakeMeFishing nonprofit organization's free fishing days throughout the country.
To celebrate this year's festivities TakeMeFishing will be hosting a week-long Facebook contest for "Memories on the Water" video submissions beginning June 2. The video submission with the most "likes" at the end of the week wins.
For details on this contest and other information visit the takemefishing.org site, or for hosting information visit the RBFF's homepage.
