Tyler, TX — Texas Parks and Wildlife is kicking off "National Fishing and Boating" week with a day of free fishing. On Saturday fisherman across Texas will be able to fish on public Texas waters at no charge.
While the game wardens will still be enforcing the state size and bag limits, there are no fishing licenses or endorsements required to hit the waters.
Texas Parks and Wildlife says, this day is their way of kicking off the summer season. Game warden Dustin Dockery explains, "It's kind of summertime and most of the kids are out so it's a good day for families to come out, and enjoy the outdoors and the recreational fishing and enjoy time with their kids."
