"Free Fishing Weekend" is June 6-7, 2020, when a fishing license is not required of anyone to fish in Washington State.
Also NOT required on Free Fishing Weekend:
- Vehicle Access Pass (which comes with a fishing license)
- A Discover Pass will not be required on WDFW or Washington State Park lands throughout the weekend, but will be required on DNR lands both days.
- Two-Pole Endorsement
Anglers should check the current fishing regulations valid June 6 and 7. While no licenses are required on Free Fishing Weekend, it's still important to check the regulations for other rules such as size limits, bag limits, catch record card requirements and area closures that will still be in effect. Halibut and razor clam harvest on the coast and intertidal shellfish in Puget Sound will remain closed.
Anglers will need to follow state guidelines by continuing to recreate in their local communities, traveling only with family or other members of their immediate household, and practicing physical distancing by keeping 6 feet apart.
