Always had mixed feelings about free fishing days. I understand the concept, but I'm not sure they accomplish the goal of attracting anglers, especially anglers who will contribute to maintaining and protecting the resource.
"Don't miss out on CDFW's final day of the year for free fishing! First time casting a line? This is a great opportunity to use that beginner's luck and enjoy one of California's most popular sports. If you're an expert angler, take that first-timer out with you. Nothing beats the excitement of that tug on the line and reeling in a hard-earned catch."
