FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky officials are offering a chance to fish for free this weekend.

Everyone is invited to participate at Kentucky lakes, streams and rivers on June 4-5, a statement from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said. Although people don’t need licenses or permits to fish, they still must follow size and number limits, the agency said.

As part of the weekend, several communities around the state are hosting youth fishing events on Saturday including the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife headquarters in Frankfort, which will offer fishing for ages 15 and younger from 9 a.m. to noon at its upper lake. The waterway will open to all ages after noon.
