NC: Free Kids’ Fishing Events Scheduled for Late May, Early June & Free Fishing Day Set for July 4


Kids can fish for free and register to win prizes, including two lifetime licenses, at one of more than 35 kids’ fishing events being conducted across the state in late May and early June. Download a list of events.

July 4 is free fishing day in North Carolina. From 12:01 a.m. until 11:59 p.m., everyone in North Carolina can fish in any public body of water without purchasing a fishing license or additional trout fishing license. Residents and non-residents can fish for free in public, inland waters, as well as coastal waters, although they will need to abide by all other fishing regulations, such as size and creel limits, as well as lure restrictions. No need to wait for July 4 to get out on the water, though. The Wildlife Commission provides access to free fishing sites across the state, including public fishing areas and boating access areas. The interactive fishing and boating maps on the Commission’s website list more than 500 fishing and boating areas, most of which are free, that are open to the public.
