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.

Whether you’re tying on a salmon fly or threading a night crawler onto a hook, during Father’s Day weekend, everyone in Montana can fish for free.

“Montana is home to some of the finest fishing anywhere in the world. It’ll be a great chance to get your family outside.” said Martha Williams, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena.

While the promotion allows anyone to fish without a license on June 15-16, all other fishing rules and regulations are in effect and must be followed.

Williams encourages all would-be anglers to be aware of boating and water safety on Montana’s rivers and streams, particularly this year as many rivers across the state are still experiencing spring runoff and flood conditions. Additionally, she reminds those with watercraft of any kind to remember to stop at all AIS inspection stations.
