Free fishing weekend Featured

Written by

BANGOR-This will be a great weekend for people who have been thinking about trying ice fishing.

Game officials are reminding Mainer's this is a free fishing weekend.

That means you can fish without a license as long as you haven't had your license revoked or suspended.

They say fishing is a great way to get outside and make some great memories with family and friends.

Maine has nearly 6-thousand lakes and more than 30-thousand miles of rivers and streams, offering plenty of great places to cast a line.

People are reminded to check the ice thickness as they go and it's always a good idea to talk with people familiar with the area before setting out.

People must also abide by all rules and regulations.

Another free fishing day will be offered June 2 and 3 so people can give it a try during the warmer weather.
