Maine Free Fishing Weekend is February 18-19

Free Fishing Weekend is a great time to get outside and enjoy one of Maine’s signature winter traditions, ice fishing! If you haven’t been ice fishing in years, this is a perfect opportunity to get back out there remember the thrill of the word “FLAG!” If you’ve never been, don’t hesitate to ask a friend, coworker, or family member to tag along… Anglers enjoy sharing their passion with others. And if you are an active ice angler already, invite someone to join!

During Free Fishing Weekend, February 18-19, 2023, any person (except those whose license has been suspended or revoked) may fish without a license. All other laws and regulations apply on these days.
