AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine officials are encouraging fishing novices to try their hand at it this weekend for free.

The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife says anyone can fish on Maine’s waterways without a license on Saturday and Sunday. Free fishing is allowed for everyone except people whose license has been revoked or suspended.

The department says this weekend is a good time to introduce children to fishing. It says that thousands of residents and out-of-state visitors every year travel to Maine’s nearly 6,000 lakes and ponds and 32,000 miles of rivers and streams to enjoy the activity.
