(LEX 18) — Looking for something to do this weekend? Go fish!

As part of National Fishing and Boating Week, you can fish for the first full weekend in June across Kentucky (June 6-7). People are encouraged to get outdoors while practicing social distancing.

A fishing license or a trout permit is not required to fish this weekend. Fishing is allowed across the state in both public and private waters (as long as you get the landowner's permission while on their property). All other regulations still apply.
