NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – On Saturday, June 3, anglers of all ages can cast their lines into New Mexico’s waters for free. Normally, anglers need a fishing license.

Public waters are fair game for free fishing this Saturday. But bag limits and other rules are still in effect.

“This is a great time to take your family fishing and teach them a skill that will provide a lifetime of enjoyment,” Mike Sloane, the director for the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, said in a press release.

New Mexico’s rivers and lakes have seen high flow rates recently. So, make sure you check current conditions before you head to your favorite fishing spot.
