Fishing news.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowans can fish without a license during an annual free fishing weekend being held June 6-8.

Joe Larscheid, chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau, says the hope is that people new to fishing will enjoy the activity and want to fish more often.

Early June is a good time to fish because bluegills typically stay close to shore and are aggressive. Larscheid says the best way to catch bluegills is to use small hooks, a bobber and small bait.

Those catching their first fish are encouraged to take a photo and send it to the DNR for a first fish award.

Although a license isn't necessary on the free-fishing weekend, other regulations remain in place.
