LINCOLN - Have you ever thought you’d like to go fishing, but didn’t want to spend the money on a fishing license?

Well, Saturday is your day.  The Nebraska Game & Parks Commission is hosting Free Fishing and Park-Entry Day across the state.

Public Information Officer Greg Wagner says he likes to call it the open house day for the state parks.

"It gives people a chance to sample what I call the good life and great outdoors of Nebraska, to take the family out to an area and maybe enjoy some playground equipment and wet a fishing line in the process. It's been very popular, and it will be popular this Saturday primarily becasue the skies are going to open up and I think we are going to get some sunshine."

Anglers must observe all fishing regulations, and camping, lodging and all other user fees still apply at state park areas.
