Free Fishing Weekend Events

For 2024, Free Fishing Weekend is June 1 and 2. This means anglers do not need a state fishing license to fish public waters, but all other privileges, regulations, and harvest restrictions are in effect. Below is a list of events hosted by KDWP, Fishing's Future, Kansas Wildscape Foundation, partners, and/or communities across Kansas on these days. This will be updated as events are added.
