FWP offers free fishing in honor of Father's Day


MISSOULA, Mont. - In honor of Father's Day, Montana residents across the state can temporarily go fishing without any restrictions.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks says people can fish in Montana without a fishing license this weekend, so no matter your age, it's free to fish on Montana's lakes and rivers. FWP wants to remind anglers to be aware of boating and water safety, as many rivers across the state are experiencing spring runoff.

Regular fishing license applications are available here.
