KCL predicts the next Kids Free Fishing Events will start Saturday, June 8.

Free-Fishing-Day

Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops haven’t officially announced the next date for their June free fishing events, but based on what they've done in recent years, we here at KCL predict that it’ll take place during two consecutive Saturdays and Sundays, June 8/9 and 15/16, 2024. 

How do we make our prediction?

Last year, Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops held their Free Kids Fishing Events for two consecutive weekends — June 10/11 and June 17/18. All signs point to a similar timeline in 2024. The second and third weekends of the month happen June 8/9 and June 15/16.
