Free Fishing Weekend - Saturday (6/17)

All across Montana, in celebration of Father's Day, Montana FWP is holding a free fishing weekend. Though, if you are heading out this weekend, all of the rules and regulations for where you are fishing still apply, so it's recommended that you brush up on the Fish, Wildlife, and Park's rule bookbefore heading out to get a line wet.

That will do it for this week's edition of Out and About, if there's something that you think we missed or something you would like to see next week, please send us all of the details in an email to outandabout@ktvh.com.
