Maine offers free fishing weekend


AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Fishermen beware: Maine’s free family fishing weekend is the first weekend in June and not the last weekend in May, as listed in the state’s new fishing law book.

People can fish without a license on June 5 and 6 in Maine, as long as their past licenses have not been suspended or revoked.

The law book released last month contains the misprint.

The Maine Warden Service says the Free Family Fishing Days are an opportunity for novice anglers to try to sport.
