INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana residents can fish without a license throughout the state this coming weekend.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says all other Indiana fishing rules and regulations apply during the promotion Saturday and Sunday. Normally, anyone 18 years old and older needs a license to fish.

The agency says many of its state parks and reservoirs are hosting special events for Free Fishing Weekend. So far they include Chain O'Lakes State Park, Hardy Lake, Summit Lake State Park, Monroe Lake's Paynetown State Recreation Area and Patoka Lake's Newton Stewart State Recreation Area. The events include children's fishing derbies.
