      Free fishing days for trout in RI

      Brickyard Pond, Barrington

      The state Department of Environmental Management said Saturday and Sunday are free fishing days for trout in Rhode Island.

      At that time, Rhode Islanders and visitors can fish in fresh waters without a fishing license or trout conservation stamp.

      The free fishing does not apply to saltwater fishing or saltwater licenses.

      Ponds with golden trout include Brickyard Pond in Barrington, Peck Pond in Burrillville, Browning Mill Pond in Exeter, and Silver Spring Lake in North Kingstown.
