Free Fishing Weekend in Iowa

It’s Free Fishing Weekend in Iowa.

Joe Larschied, the fisheries bureau chief with the Iowa DNR, says it’s a family-friendly event where many parents or grandparents teach their kids or grandkids the time-honored skill.

You don’t have to worry about your fishing license for the three-day weekend through Sunday, but there are important things to remember when casting a line.

He says you won’t have to travel far to find some sort of fishing activity this weekend.

Last year, the DNR stocked 165-million fish statewide, topping the previous record by nine-million fish.
