National Parks, State Fishing Freebies in California

Published on: August 21, 2015


It’s that spectacular time of year once again when you can get in free to all of California’s national parks. On August 25, 2015 the National Park Service celebrates its 99th birthday with free admission to ALL national parks throughout the U.S. In California many national parks offer free admission regularly but not so for some of the top visited parks such as Yosemite National Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Joshua Tree National Park and Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park. Since it is summer expect crowds, perhaps. Two additional free days remain in 2015.

California State Parks doesn’t grant many free admission days that we know about at their fee-based parks. However, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife does have several free fishing days per year in which you aren’t required to purchase a fishing license. The final fishing day for 2015 is September 5. Fishing regulations such as bag and size limits remain in effect. On Free Fishing Days, every angler who fishes for abalone, steelhead, sturgeon, spiny lobster or Smith and Klamath-Trinity River Systems salmon must have the appropriate report card.
