This is your chance to try fishing without having to buy a permit. Our annual Free Fishing Days are the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June. Any person may fish state waters without permit, trout permit and prescribed area daily tag during Free Fishing Days.
Requirements for special permits still may apply at some county, city or private areas. Normal regulations, such as size and daily limits, still apply, too.
Find more information on the MDC website.
Grab your fishing pole and lantern for the first overnight fishing opportunity of the summer! The park will be open for fishing only and park police officers will be on duty throughout the night. Before fishing, area anglers’ ages 16-74 will need to have a valid Kansas fishing license, a Johnson County Park & Recreation District fishing permit, and all appropriate boat tags, if applicable. For more information about the overnight fishing program, call (913) 888-4713.
