Here's the perfect gift for dad and grandpa: free fishing for all over Father's Day weekend, June 14-15.
"There is no better way to enjoy Montana with friends and family than to plan for a day of fishing," said Jeff Hagener, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Helena. "You can fish without a license on June 14 and June 15, but you must follow all of Montana's other fishing regulations."
Each year more than 230,000 residents and 160,000 nonresidents purchase a Montana fishing license. Anglers spend about $240 million in Montana for things like transportation, food and guide fees.
Montana's most popular waters include, of course, Fort Peck Lake.
