The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) has announced new dates for Free Fishing Day in 2009. Free Fishing Days will be the Fourth of July and Labor Day, September 7 when DFG will waive the license requirement for citizens 16 or older.
All other fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect. On Free Fishing Days, anglers also must have the appropriate report card if they are taking abalone and some other species.
