As part of Governor Cuomo's NY Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative, September 28, 2019 has been designated as a free fishing day.

The requirement for a fishing license is waived on this date. This is a great opportunity to try fishing for the first time or for experienced anglers to take friends fishing for the first time.

Some ideas for FREE Fishing days:

  • Try fishing for the first time.
  • Haven't fished in a while? Remember the joy of catching a fish again for free!
  • Become an ambassador to the sport; take a friend fishing for the first time.
  • Invite a friend to New York to fish.
  • Take a spouse or significant other fishing.
  • Take the family fishing...and don't forget the grandparents!
