Everyone is encouraged to cast a line and enjoy Maine’s many waterways with the special moms in their life during the Mother’s Day Free Fishing License Weekend, May 8-9.

On these days, any person (except those whose license has been suspended or revoked) who registers may fish without a license. All other laws and regulations apply on these days.

This free fishing license weekend is in addition to the semi-annual free fishing weekends. The next is June 5-6.

Remember to be safe: Tell someone where you are going, and when you plan to return, and ALWAYS wear a life jacket when on the water – the water is extremely cold this time of year.
