March 23 @ 6:30 am - 5:00 pm

Mar 23, 2024 | 6:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Please Note: This event begins at 6:30 a.m. statewide but not all locations (e.g. State Parks) may be open or accessible at that time. Confirm your local access point’s opening time before attending.

A new trout fishing opportunity just for youth anglers! Only individuals 15 and younger may fish in certain put-and-take trout areas from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on March 23, one week before the traditional season opening. The areas that will be open only to youth on this day are those listed as Closure 1 and Closure 2. The designated areas are listed by county below. Youth anglers may catch and keep up to two trout each, except brook trout, which must be released if caught.

Check DNR’s event link for locations that will be stocked prior to Youth-Only Trout Fishing Day.
