HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Montana fish and wildlife officials are opening the state’s lakes and rivers to free fishing during the Father’s Day weekend.

Since 2011, anglers have been allowed to fish without a license on the Saturday and Sunday of Father’s Day.

Gov. Steve Bullock says in a statement Friday the tradition is meant as a gift to dads and as a way for families to spend time together.

Even though a license isn’t required, anglers must follow all of the state’s other fishing rules.
