Free Fishing on July 4th in North Carolina

Looking for something fun to do on July 4th? Why not fish?! It's an activity the whole family can enjoy. Even folks who don't like to fish will enjoy the time outdoors with picnic or BBQ while the kids fish.

If you live in North Carolina, you can fish for free on July 4th ... no fishing license or trout stamp is required. All other fishing regulations, such as fish length and daily possession limits, as well as bait and tackle restrictions and park-use fees, apply.

Already have plans this year? There's always next year then. Every year North Carolina designates July 4th as a free fishing day in an effort to raise interest in the sport.

Fishing is Good!

Sorry I haven't been posting lately. We've been having an unusual cool summer in Arizona thanks to rain. This means the trout fishing at my local lakes has been better than usual and needless to say, I've been taking advantage of it!

If you're new to trout fishing, remember that mornings and dusk are typically the best times to catch trout during warmer summer months.
