If you want to go fishing in Kansas but don’t have a license, this weekend is a great time to go.

Each year the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism designates a weekend allowing people to fish without a license. "Free Fishing Days" allows those with fishing poles the opportunity to fish for crappie, catfish, largemouth bass and bluegill at state lakes and rivers.

Good fishing spots can be found at ksoutdoors.com, by clicking on “Fishing” and then on “Where to Fish,” which brings up a map of the state separated into northwest, northeast, southwest, south-central and southeast regions. Clicking on the region where you want to fish will bring up a map of specific fishing spots.
