PUEBLO, Colo. – June 6-7 is special for all anglers across Colorado because it marks the annual Free Fishing Weekend. All possession limits, fishing methods and bait methods still apply, but a fishing license is not required for either day.

Youth-fly-fishing-funAs part of Free Fishing Weekend, Lake Pueblo State Park will host its Annual Kids Fishing Derby on June 6.  Children ages 3-12 are welcome, and registration is from 7-8 a.m. at Anticline Fishing Pond located within Rock Canyon just east of the Swim Beach.

The first 100 kids to register will receive a free fishing pole.  Fishing will begin at 8 a.m. and run until 10 a.m.  At 10 a.m., fishing will conclude and prizes will be awarded.

The event is free, but a parks pass ($7/day or $70/annual) will be required.  Parks passes can be purchased at any park entry gate using the self service station.
