Free fishing this weekend

Take mom fishing for Mother's Day....for free

ATTN anglers: this weekend, Saturday, May 7, and Sunday, May 8, are FREE Fishing Days in Rhode Island! Rhode Islanders and visitors alike can fish in the state's freshwaters on both days for all species of freshwater fish, without a fishing license or trout conservation stamp.

Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity for beginners to try out fishing for the first time. If you already have a fishing license, consider taking a friend or family member who has never been fishing, out on the water for the day. 

You could even take your mother out fishing on Mother’s Day! It’s a great time to pass on the tradition while you create memories with friends and family.

Please note: All creel and possession limits apply. The free fishing weekend does not apply to saltwater fishing or saltwater licenses. For a list of designated trout waters and other information of interest to anglers, please visit
