(Minnesota) — Today, Friday, June 11th, kicks off a fun weekend to get out on the water with “Take a Kid Fishing” Weekend across Minnesota.

Friday, June 11th through Sunday, June 13th, Minnesota residents can fish without licenses if they take children 15 or younger fishing with them. Children aged 15 or younger do not require fishing licenses at any time of the year, though they must observe all fishing seasons and other regulations.

“Take a Kid Fishing” Weekend allows adults to fish without a license as long as they take a child fishing with them. Minnesota residents also may generally fish in state parks without a fishing license if the body of water does not require a trout stamp.

More information on how to obtain a fishing license and the Learn to Fish page from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources can be found with this story.
