Statewide Opportunity to Give Angling a Try
This is a unique opportunity for Marylanders to test their fishing skills without the need to obtain a fishing license, trout stamp or registration.
“Free fishing days are the perfect opportunity to give the sport a try before deciding whether to get a license,” Fishing and Boating ServicesDirector David Blazer said. “Fishing is open from the surf of the Atlantic Ocean to the mountain streams of Western Maryland.”
All anglers must follow current size and catch limits. An online guide is available and a printed version can picked up at many service centers or local bait-and-tackle shops. The department also has dozens of other resources to help new or experienced anglers, including angler access maps, Click Before You Cast and fish identification charts.
