Massachusetts Free Fishing Weekend
While you can fish for free on June 4th and 5th, a license is required at all other times for those 15 years of age or older. At all other times, youths ages 15 to 17 must obtain and carry a fishing license; however, licenses are free for that age group. Funds from fishing license sales support MassWildlife’s fisheries research, fish stocking programs, and angler education programs.
Your purchase of a fishing license directly supports fishing, stocking, education and fish habitat management programs.
How to Get a MA Fishing License
Unlike most other state agencies, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife does not receive general tax fund revenues.
