INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Your last chance to fish Indiana's public waterways without a license is coming up this weekend.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources holds four "Free Fishing Days" throughout the spring, where anglers can fish the state's public waters without a fishing license or a trout/salmon stamp. On other days, only children 17 and younger, Indiana residents born before April 1, 1943, as well as a few others with exemptions, are able to fish for free.

Saturday and Sunday (June 2-3) are the final "Free Fishing Days" of the year. Indiana DNR previously hosted the event on April 21 and May 19.

If you're just getting into fishing, the department also uses the free fishing days to hold workshops and clinics to help beginners.
