If you love to fish, but you don’t have a license, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources has issued a reprieve.
The state will allow anglers to fish without a license on three days this summer: June 1, June 8 and July 4.
“We are lucky to live in a state where you can fish in fresh, brackish and salt water — often all in the same day if you want,” Recreational Fishing Outreach Coordinator Erik Zlokovitz told CBS Baltimore. “This opportunity allows recreational anglers to try their hand at something new before committing to a license.”
Although you can fish without a license, you must still follow the current size and catch limits.
Anglers who decide to get or renew their license can do so either online, on the department’s mobile app, by phone or in person at any Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration licensing center.
