Get out the fishing rods, Colorado’s free fishing weekend is back. Colorado Parks and Wildlife said all anglers can fish without a license anywhere in Colorado on Saturday and Sunday.

The annual event, during the first weekend of June, aims to get families, friends and anglers back into Colorado’s outdoors to fish for cold and warm fish species. The CPW has resources to help those interested in fishing throughout the state.

The agency has a map with 101 family-friendly fishing sites. Some fishing spots on the map in the Denver metro area with easily accessible shores that are great for kids are Bear Creek Reservoir, City Park Lake in Denver, Quincy Reservoir and Aurora Reservoir.

After Sunday, anglers will need a license to fish in Colorado.
