If you'd like to introduce someone to fishing — or you'd like to give fishing a try, but you don't have a fishing license — mark June 8 on your calendar. June 8 is Free Fishing Day in Utah! You don't need a fishing license to fish in the state that day.

If you don't have any fishing equipment — or you do, but you'd like some help fishing — we’re hosting a few special events at waters throughout the state. We’ll post details about those events here soon.

You don't need a license to fish on June 8, but the remaining fishing rules in Utah will be in effect. The rules are available in the 2019 Utah Fishing Guidebook:
