Iowa residents can fish for free this weekend

Jun 05, 2013

DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa residents can fish without a license this weekend.

The Department of Natural Resources says the free fishing weekend will run from Friday through Sunday.

The event typically is scheduled during a time when bluegills are usually close to shore and aggressive, making it likely novice anglers will have success.

The DNR encourages those catching their first fish to take a photo and send it to the DNR, which will commemorate the event by sending back a certificate suitable for framing and the submitted photo.

All other regulations remain in place during the free fishing weekend.
