PHOENIX – Here’s a reel deal to lure in anglers: Saturday is Arizona Free Fishing Day.

“Whether you’re a seasoned angler who wants to introduce a newcomer to the sport, or someone who’s always been interested but never took that next step, this is the perfect time to get outdoors and experience what fishing in Arizona is all about,” Julie Carter, aquatic wildlife branch chief for the Arizona Game and Fish Department, said in a press release.

On other days, anybody age 10 and older needs a license to fish in Arizona.

If you try it out Saturday and get hooked on the activity, annual fishing licenses cost $37 for state residents and $55 for nonresidents.

Game and Fish also offers combination hunting/fishing licenses.

Information about purchasing licenses is available on the department’s website.
