Free Fishing Days in Utah

Do you know someone that has been wanting to try fishing, but hasn’t yet purchased a fishing license? If so, Free Fishing Days events are a great time to introduce beginners to the fun of sport fishing without having to buy a fishing license. Many Free Fishing Days events take place during National Fishing and Boating Week, which is the first week in June every year.
