(Jan. 8, 2014) – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries would like to advise anglers of a correction to the “Free Fishing Weekend” dates listed on page 8 of the 2014 fishing regulations pamphlet.
The correct dates for the annual, no fishing license required weekend are June 7-8, 2014. The promotional fishing dates are provided for novices and non-anglers as an opportunity to experience recreational fishing in fresh or salt water without the purchase of a recreational fishing license.
The correction has been made in the online version of the fishing regulations pamphlet posted on the Department’s website at http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/fishing/regulations.
