Every year Texas Parks and Wildlife Department offers free fishing days allowing people to fish statewide without a fishing license. Scheduled the first week in June… for 2021, it is June 5!
That said, where would we go fishing to take advantage of the free fishing day? For one, we would like to fish all day, make for an easy setup using gear we already have or can readily obtain, and keep in mind the rain forecasted this Saturday!
So, where would we go… we would go East, to the Texas Coast for some Texas Fishing Pier (and jetty) action! Depending on where you are located in Texas, there are options in the Upper, Middle, and Lower Coast that may be of interest!
However, given our current day job schedule, yours truly will likely stay local to the DFW Metroplex, fishing a local lake… but keeping it simple – a kayak, shad for bait, and our $9.98 Zebco “older model” floating rod/reel combo!
Where would you go on a Free Fishing Day? Let us know in the comments!
PS: Oklahoma Free Fishing Days are June 5 and 6… Add Denison Dam and Texoma as options!
