Free Fishing Day nearsApril 30, 2020
From Local Sources
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s first Free Fishing Day of the year is Sunday, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
A DNR press release touts fishing as an excellent way to get outside and connect as a family.
“It is also a great opportunity to relax and connect with the outdoors while practicing social distancing,” the release states. “If fishing is a new activity for your family, keep things simple. This often makes fishing more fun and safe.
“The best thing to do is get out there and wet a line. May is an especially good time to fish because the water is warming and the fish are biting.”
Public places to fish can be found on the Where to Fish map here.
This year’s remaining Free Fishing Days are June 6 and 7 and Sept. 26.
When fishing or doing any other activity, Hoosiers should follow posted restrictions and practice social distancing. The DNR says a fishing rod is a measure of appropriate social distance.
