Saturday is Free Fishing Day, Discover Nevada State Parks Day

The Fernley Reporter

Saturday, June 10, is Free Fishing Day in Nevada, the one day a year when anyone can fish in any public fishing water in the state without a fishing license or trout stamp. Along with free fishing, NDOW conducts a number of events across the state to introduce, mostly young people, into the sport of fishing.

Information about the events scheduled is available at

June 10 is also Discover Nevada State Parks Day, statewide event that encourages Nevadans to discover the many exciting and affordable recreation opportunities right in their own backyards.


“Nevada’s 23 state parks offer a great diversity of outdoor opportunities,” said State Parks Administrator Eric Johnson. “For example, visitors can explore the slot canyons of Cathedral Gorge, tour a genuine ghost town at Berlin-Ichthyosaur or spend a relaxing afternoon fishing at Wild Horse.”

Discover Nevada State Parks Day is also an opportunity for visitors to take the passport challenge and add a stamp to their passport booklet, or if they don’t have one yet, to pick one up while visiting any state park. Once visitors have their passports stamped at 15 different parks, they earn a free annual day-use pass to all Nevada State Parks.
