Free Smallmouth?

Recommended Posts

Illinois Free Fishing Days is June 6-9 of this 2014 year.


I don't know, it just seems to me like the DNR should move these days to a time after June 15th. so

it does not coincide with the smallmouth catch & release season.


Just seems like there's a problem there.

I don't think the CPOs get those days off. There will still be patrol / enforcement -- although the amount never seems to satisfy everyone. Maybe it's better that the free fishing days are inside the C&R period. In any case, don't think I'd lose any sleep over it.

I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. Just kind of seems odd to me.



its also a big weekend for graduations, so many anglers have family plans and cant fish rich mc


I live in Rockford, IL.

We have no graduates. :)

I agree with Eric on this one. Most will hopefully fish posted areas or know the law. No one here has heard of it unfortunately. That's why I throw signs up once a year in hopes of education.
