Free Fishing Clinics
Free Sport Fishing Events are family fishing clinics where participants can fish for free; no freshwater fishing license or enrollment in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry is required. In addition to fishing, participants can learn about fish identification, fishing equipment and techniques, fisheries management, angling ethics and aquatic ecology. In addition to the Free Sport Fishing Events, June 24-25, 2017, is Free Fishing Weekend in NY. February 18-19, 2017 and November 11, 2017 have also been newly designated as Free Fishing Days. During these days, anyone can fish the fresh or marine waters of NY and no license is required!
