Saltwater or Freshwater – Fish Without a License in June
Here is a great way to get out and fish with the family, even if you don't have a fishing license. The State of Texas will allow Texans to fish without a license on Saturday, June 3rd. Free fishing days are a perfect opportunity for beginners to try out fishing for the first time. This is a perfect opportunity to consider taking a friend or family member who has never been fishing, out on the water for the day. If you're not sure where you can go fishing, you can visit takemefishing.org for great fishing locations. What is your favorite fishing spot?
The Victoria Police Department will host “Casting with Cops,” a free youth fishing event, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. May 6 at Son Valley Ranch to strengthen the relationship between Victoria’s youth and VPD officers.
During this event, children ages 2 to 15 will have the opportunity to meet their local first responders. Officers will help children with baiting hooks, reeling in fish and taking fish off the hooks.
The event will have four one-hour time slots with a maximum of 50 participants per hour. Participants must register in advance by contacting the Community Engagement Unit at 361-485-3808 or PoliceCEU@victoriatx.gov.
