FISHING — No fishing license required — a huge savings for a family, especially out of state — is a perk coming up in the Inland Northwest as states observe Free Fishing Days.

Idaho is boosting the interest by organizing kid-fishing events for it's Free Fishing Day activities on Saturday (June 8).

While license requirements are suspended for this special day, all other rules, such as limits or tackle restrictions, remain in effect.

At the following special locations around the Panhandle, equipment will be available for use, and fishing experts will be on hand to help novice anglers learn the ins and outs of fishing. In addition, all these locations will be stocked with hatchery rainbow trout prior to Saturday.
