Saturday and Sunday (June 2-3) will be the perfect days to go fishing in Oklahoma because it will be free.
No one will need an Oklahoma fishing license either day as part of the state’s annual free fishing days.
Some cities may still require city fishing permits on Saturday and Sunday. However, Oklahoma City anglers will not need city fishing permits when fishing at Hefner, Overholser, Draper or any of the designated “Close to Home” fishing ponds in the metro area.
Anglers fishing at Lake Texoma should be aware that the free fishing days applies for all of the lake on Saturday but only on the Oklahoma portion of the lake on Sunday.
Oklahoma was the first state in the nation to offer free fishing days about 30 years ago. The free fishing days kick off National Fishing and Boating Week across the country.
