McALESTER — Oklahoma anglers can fish for free during Free Fishing Days, which takes place June 1-2. During these days, a state fishing license will not be required for anglers to go fishing in Oklahoma.

Additionally, an Oklahoma City fishing permit will not be required for fishing those waters where the permit is normally mandatory.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's many communication outlets, such as its free news releases, Facebook and Twitter accounts and weekly fishing reports are useful starting points for finding fishing information.

Every week the fishing report provides a listing of lakes and the current state of angling success at that location. The Department also updates its Facebook page daily with current reports from its own personnel as well as its fans on a range of current outdoor activities.
