People interested in fishing have a chance to fish this weekend without facing a penalty starting today.  Chad Dolan, Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Biologist says this weekend allows free fishing to all Iowa residents without having to buy a license.  He says this free fishing is open to all open waters of the state including the Iowa waters of the Mississippi River.

Dolan adds all other fishing regulations such as size and bag limits are still in place.  This free weekend is offered in June because fishing is good and it’s usually spawning season for different fish.  The free fishing weekend starts today and runs through Sunday.
