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.
