Lake Texoma

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Free Fishing Days June 6 and 7

by




The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation announced that everyone can fish without a state fishing license June 6 and June 7 on Oklahoma’s Free Fishing Days.

While Free Fishing Days allows people to fish without having a state fishing license, anglers still must abide by all other fishing regulations including daily bag limits and size restrictions, wildlife officials said. And for people not familiar with fishing just yet, the department has a fishing resources page online.

Even though the outdoors are always open in Oklahoma, the Wildlife Department encourages everyone to heed health officials' recommendations for staying safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. For anglers, officials said it's easy to distance yourself from others by the length of an adult's fishing rod.

All of Lake Texoma is open for free fishing June 6, but free fishing will only apply to the Oklahoma portion of the lake June 7. Anglers must abide by all Texas fishing license and permit requirements when fishing the Texas portion of Lake Texoma on June 7.
