Topeka The state is offering a chance to fish for free this weekend.
As part of National Fishing Week, anglers will be able to use all the public waters in Kansas free of charge on Saturday and Sunday.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks says the state has had a free fishing weekend since 1988. Ordinarily, the state requires nonresidents 16 or older and residents age 16 through 64 to have a fishing license.
To find a fishing location, go to the parks department's website, www.kdwp.state.ks.us.
