Outdoors with Big Country – Free Fishing Weekend in Kentucky

sunset fishing outdoors 300KENTUCKY (5/30/13) – All across the Bluegrass State, there are thousands of folks that love to fish. On the first weekend of June, of every year, there is the “Free Fishing Weekend.”
 
This statewide event is a time where the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has waived the cost of a license for anyone that wishes to go out fishing. This is for anyone 16-years-old or older that would normally require a license, and is only for the first weekend of June.
 
You can actually fish without purchasing a fishing license. Nevertheless, you still have to follow all fishing regulations and requirements, such as size limitations and amount of fish limits listed in the Kentucky fishing guide.
 
This great opportunity gives people the chance to get out and experience the thrill of fishing, and possibly introducing someone to fishing that has never had the opportunity to go.
 
The best times to hit the water are the minute that the sun breaks the horizon, and a couple of hours thereafter, as well as in the afternoon hours. These are the times of day when the winds are light and variable, and light conditions are favorable for fishing in the shallow water spots.

To quote famed angler and sportsman Bill Dane, “You never know what kind of jerk may be on the other end of your line.”
 
Bass, Crappie, Bluegill and Catfish are the most sought after by Kentucky anglers, and they are all active at this time.
 
I wish you the best of luck and hope that you will be safe while outdoors.
 
Until next week, we’ll see you on the water or in the woods.
