Free fishing days ahead for everyone on June 6-7

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) has announced
that 2009 Free Fishing Days will be June 6-7, in coordination with
National Fishing Week. On these days, anglers of all ages may fish
without a fishing license. Ordinarily, nonresidents 16 or older and
residents age 16 through 64 must have a fishing license to fish in
Kansas, but on June 6-7, everyone gets to fish for free, making
this the ideal time to introduce youngsters to a healthy,
challenging pastime that offers a lifetime of pleasure.

Kansas has hundreds of lakes and streams, including numerous
conveniently-located community lakes. To find the ideal Kansas
fishing location for you, click here.

Public fishing waters also are listed in the 2009 Kansas Fishing
Regulations Summary, available online or in printed form at KDWP
offices and license vendors around the state. The summary also
provides a fish identification guide, length and creel limits, and
a variety of additional information for anglers.

For information on fishing prospects, reservoir ratings for all
sportfish may be found on the website’s Fishing Forecast. In
addition, the most currently-recorded biologists’ fishing reports
may be found online, and anglers can report their own experiences
and read those of others on the department’s Public Fishing
Reports. A new addition to the Public Fishing Reports blog is a
section called “Dock Squawk.” In this section, any angler may
discuss any fishing issue that is not related to a current report
from a local lake or stream. A “Dock Squawk” blog has been created
for anglers to discuss fishing-related issues in each region of the

Late May and early June are some of the best times to take
advantage of Kansas angling opportunities. If you haven’t already
bought a fishing license, take advantage of this opportunity on
June 6-7.
