FISHING -- Free fishing days are water under the bridge in Washington and Idaho, but Montana saves the occasion for the big event of the year for dads.
Whether you cast a fly or bait a hook everyone can fish for free Saturday and Sunday, June 20-21, in celebration of Montana’s Father's Day weekend.
"While many Montana anglers want to keep their favorite fishing hole a secret, one thing that isn’t a secret is that our state is home to some of the best rivers, lakes, and streams for fishing in the world," said Gov. Steve Bullock in a media release.
"I encourage Montanans to take advantage of this free fishing weekend, and maybe even show off their secret fishing spot to a child or grandchild."
The state's "fish for free" weekend was established in 2011 as the state's Father's Day gift to dads everywhere.
