Last Free Fishing Day 2019 in California


The last free fishing day for 2019 is almost here.

Get ready for some free fishing on August 31, 2019 in California, compliments of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

It is one of the rare events when you can get something for nothing. If you never tried fishing before or if you are visiting the great outdoors, try fishing. Any experienced angler will be happy to introduce his friends to his hobby.

You could be doing this on free fishing day 2019 (

Here is the deal: August 31, 2019 on the long Labor Day Weekend is the last free fishing day of the year. Budding anglers can try out the sport in any river, lake or pond open to the public in California.

There are few restricting rules and regulations in effect other than the standard rules that apply to fishing in general in Californian waters. Among them, of course, are bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures. Anglers also must carry the required report card if they intend to fish for steelhead or sturgeon anywhere in the state, or salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity river systems.

Yet, it is a good idea to prepare for the free fishing day by reading up on the rules and regulations published on the CDFW website. Some basic information is here and in our earlier article about first free fishing day 2019. A link to the CDFW free fishing day site is at the end of that article.

While you are mobile, you can also use the mobile website of CDFW to get the latest information on limits and regulations that apply to fishing spot.

Taking a stab at free fishing during the free fishing day will save you at least $ 16.20. A basic annual CA resident fishing license sets you back by $ 49.94.

Finally, some cities offer free fishing in waters within the city limits. Contact the city to check whether they allow license-free fishing during the free fishing day 2019 in California.
