Some people use the warm weather as an excuse to stay inside with the cold air blowing non-stop. Others use this time of year to get outside and enjoy nature...which can also be relaxing and fun. Here is a free way to get outside with your family and learn to fish and maybe catch dinner. June 8th is a free fishing day in Idaho. This means that anybody can fish even if you don't have a license. There are also a few days coming up in specific locations when you will be able to fish. The Idaho Fish and Game has a trailer that they take to certain ponds and lakes through the summer. The trailer is full of fishing rods and reels so you can borrow their equipment to take you and your family fishing. The list of free fishing days where you will find the trailer is below and at the Fish and Game website.
