What’s better than a day of free fishing? Two days of free fishing, of course. Across the state, anglers of all ages can enjoy a full weekend of free fishing June 7-8 on any Kansas waters. Although some parks may require a vehicle permit, no fishing license is required of anglers during the two-day period.
