It's back. Get ready for free fishing days in Oklahoma. It's an opportunity to go fishing FOR FREE without having to purchase a license from the state. You'll have an entire weekend to hit the lakes, ponds, creeks, and rivers.
As hot as it's been lately Oklahomans are looking for ways to cool off this Summer including hitting the lakes, ponds, and rivers for a quick dip, but is it safe? The dangers a lot of people are concerned with are invisible to the naked eye and you won't know if it's attacked you until it's too late. The dreaded brain-eating amoeba!
It's like something out of a B-Horror film, those old creature features from the late seventies and eighties. However, this is not a movie, it's real-life and you could come face to face with a nightmarish prehistoric beast lurking just below the surface of Oklahoma lakes.
Oklahoma's "Free Fishing Days" are coming up this weekend starting Saturday, June 5th through Sunday, June 6th (06-05-21 to 06-06-21). You can fish local and area public lakes, ponds and other places throughout Oklahoma without the need for a state fishing license. It's the perfect time to introduce people, especially kids to fishing and the great outdoors. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation does this every year and it's always a fun family weekend of fishing and spending time together. So if you didn't have any plans for this weekend, you do now! Grab the tackle, poles and head to the water...
