Free Fishing Day In Sacramento

California Department of Fish and Game

Aspiring Sacramento anglers can get tips from the experts on Free Fishing Day, Saturday, Sept. 3. The Department of Fish and Game?s (DFG) Fishing in the City program will host a free fishing clinic, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Howe Park in Sacramento.

The park pond will be stocked with channel catfish and DFG will loan rods, bait and tackle to participants. The park is located off Howe Avenue at Cottage Way. DFG fishing clinics are fun for all ages and reservations are not required.

September 3 will be the second of the state?s two annual Free Fishing Days, during which adult anglers may fish throughout California even if they haven?t purchased a fishing license. All other regulations, such as bag limits, still apply. It is a good opportunity for experienced anglers to introduce a friend to the sport of fishing.

For more information, see the Fishing in the City webpage at and the Free Fishing Days webpage at, or call (916) 358-2872.
