Where don't I need a fishing license?

Answer

There are two instances in which you can fish without a license:

1). Free Fishing Day...you can fish anywhere without a fishing license

2).  On a licensed, private pond.  Landowners can go through Fish and Game to license a private pond and they can make any kind of requirements they want to for the private pond.
