Maryland free fishing days will be June 4, June 11 and July 4, 2011. No fishing license is required to fish in State waters on these days.
During free fishing days, anglers must adhere to minimum size and creel limits for the 62 species that are managed by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Anglers can check fishing regulations by obtaining a copy of the 2011 Maryland Fishing Guide. The guide is available online at dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries/regulations/regindex.asp or any of the seven DNR Service Centers.
According to MD DNR, anglers fishing on Maryland’s free-fishing days do not need to register with the National Saltwater Angler registry.
