Free Fishing in Montana for Father’s Day Weekend

Nothing says “father’s day” like fishing. The Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks understand that father’s day is all about spending time with Dad. That is why they are allowing anyone who wants to fish in Montana, to do so without a license.

According to the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks website

Here’s the perfect gift for Dad and Grandpa: free fishing for all over Father’s Day weekend, June 18-19.

“There is no better way to enjoy Montana with friends and family than to plan for a day of fishing,” said Jeff Hagener, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena said. “You can fish without a license on June 18 and June 19, but you must follow all of Montana’s other fishing regulations.”

In total, each year more than 230,000 residents and 160,000 nonresidents purchase a Montana fishing license. Anglers spend more than $900 million annually in Montana for things like transportation, food and guide fees.

Montana’s most popular waters include the Madison, Bighorn, Missouri, Bitterroot and Gallatin rivers; and Canyon Ferry, Flathead, Georgetown, Hauser, and Fort Peck lakes.

“Montana’s ‘fish for free’ weekend is the state’s Father’s Day gift to dad’s everywhere,” Hagener said. “We want everyone to have a fun time, so we’re also encouraging folks to check conditions first and to always keep safety as their top concern.”
