Other than Free Fishing Weekend, you need a license to fish in fresh water if you are 15 or older. If you’re 15–17 or 70 and older, your license is free. Funds from fishing license sales support MassWildlife’s fisheries research, fish stocking programs, and angler education programs. Buy your fishing license here.
It’s easy to learn to fish. All you need to get started is some simple gear and a little practice! Read fishing tips and watch tutorial videos.
