Free Fishing Weekend

Six-year-old Christopher Medina shows off the 21-inch, 2-pound rainbow trout he caught last weekend at Joe Moore Reservoir north of Mancos. Christopher is the son of Chris and Brandy Medina. This weekend is “Free Fishing Weekend” in Colorado – no fishing license is required in the state Saturday and Sunday for sport fishing. All other regulations remain in effect, though, meaning limits on the number of fish that can be caught each day, known as a “bag limit,” and restrictions on bait in certain waters will still be enforced.Each year, Colorado Parks and Wildlife sets aside the first full weekend in June to promote sport fishing.
