It’s the only weekend all year that residents 16 and older don’t need a fishing license to fish in any Ohio public waters, including Lake Erie and the Ohio River.

“Ohio offers extraordinary fishing opportunities in its lakes, reservoirs, rivers and streams,” said ODNR Director Mary Mertz. “I invite all Ohioans to get outside and create lasting memories with family and friends during our free fishing days weekend.”

Last summer was the best walleye season many Ohio anglers ever remember. This year promises to be just as good.

Anglers 16 years and older are required to have a valid fishing license to take fish, frogs or turtles from Ohio waters when not fishing on Ohio’s free fishing days weekend.
