The California Department of Fish and Wildlife encourages anglers to go fishing with a friend or neighbor who doesn't have a license this Saturday.
The department offers two Free Fishing Days each year usually around the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekend when it's legal to fish without a sport fishing license. This year, the Free Fishing Days were set for the Saturdays following Independence Day and Labor Day (July 6 and Sept. 7).
All other fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect.
Anglers should check the rules and regulations at dfg.ca.gov/regulations for the waters they plan to fish.
