TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Florida residents and visitors can take advantage of the no fishing license required for freshwater fishing on Sunday.

Last weekend, Gov. Rick Scott signed off on no license required for saltwater fishing, with this week designated for freshwater fishing.

“Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World, and taking advantage of these license-free fishing weekends is the perfect opportunity for Floridians and their families to get outdoors,” said Gov. Rick Scott.

“I appreciate the hard work of FWC to ensure that Florida remains the Fishing Capital of the World.”

“Summertime in the Sunshine State is great for getting on or near the water,” said Bo Rivard, Chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

“I hope the different opportunities to fish license-free during the next two weekends will inspire new anglers to give it a try. Established anglers, I encourage you to take a friend or family member out and introduce them to the Fishing Capital of the World!”

FWC offers eight total license-free fishing days each year. Bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on these days.
