This is Free Fishing Weekend and National Trails Day for Kentucky. State residents and non-residents can fish any allowable inland water in the Bluegrass State this weekend without a fishing license. Adults can fish free all weekend, and kids under 16 do not need a license to fish in Kentucky. Keep in mind: Season dates, limits and all other fishing regulations must be followed during Free Fishing Weekend. Don’t have a pole? Audubon State Park has a free “loaner” program. You may sign out equipment and purchase bait at the John James Audubon State Park Boat Dock between 10 A.M. and 6 P.M.
