Summer's here with its lure of clear water, fishing rod in hand waiting for a big one to hit your line. If you've been dreaming about fishing, tomorrow's your day.

The first Saturday in June each year is Free Fishing Day in Texas. You can fish any public waterbody in the state without a fishing license. 

It's the perfect opportunity for experienced anglers to share what they know and teach it to a new generation.  And for those branching out and trying it on their own, Texas Parks and Wildlife offers resources to get you started.
