For those who didn't know, June 1-9 is National Fishing and Boating Week and Arizona Game and Fish is celebrating by giving everyone a "Free Fishing Day" this Saturday (June 1). This means, you can fish all our waters around the state that day without a license.
If you've wanted to take the kids fishing, but haven't been able to get that license, this is the perfect day to take advantage of that and hit any of our public waters.
Game and Fish is even hosting a few events at select lakes where they'll be loaning out fishing gear and bait (See locations below).Lake Pleasant:
