Ohio FREE Fishing Days 2014

By April 10, 2014

Follow me on:

Residents can fish Lake Erie or the many rivers and streams in the state on May 5 and May 6 for FREE (without having to get a license) in 2014. Non-residents and those wishing to fish the rest of the season will still need to obtain an Ohio fishing license.

When I googled Ohio free fishing for this year the Google web page for this web site came up saying, “Apr 2, 2013 –Residents can fish Lake Erie or the many rivers and streams in the state on May 1 and May 2 for FREE …” The URL says, ” http://cleveland.about.com/b/2013/04/02/more-free-things-to-do-this-weekendohio-free-fishing-days-may-6-and-7.htm“. I believe both of these are misprinted dates as this webpage says May 4 and 5 which is on a Saturday and Sunday. Is this in fact correct?

I believe the dates are wrong this year also, , it says 5th and 6th, which would be Mon. and Tues. Is it in fact the first weekend in May, which would be the 3rd and 4th? Please confirm
