Every year on the second Saturday in June (except it is on June 6, 2009), the TWRA allows all residents and non-residents to fish without a license. Children that are 13 to 15 years of age may fish without a license for the entire week starting on Free Fishing Day and continuing through the following Friday. Children younger than 13 may fish without a license at any time of the year. The TWRA sponsors many Kids Free Fishing Day events and stocks thousand of pounds of catfish to help make the events quality experiences for young anglers.
