Every year, Ohioans have the chance to enjoy a weekend of free fishing without a license, and this year is no exception. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources announced that from Saturday, June 17-Sunday, June 18, you can head out to any of the public waters in the state to bait your hook.

Beginners can also find luck at smaller water outlets at Three Creeks, Scioto Grove, and other Columbus Metro Parks.
