2023 NYS Free Fishing Days

June 24, 2023 - June 25, 2023

The DEC's #NYSFreeFishing Days are a great opportunity to rediscover the love of fishing, bring the family fishing, or go fishing with a buddy without needing a fishing license. Must abide by NYS DEC freshwater fishing regulations.

Free fishing days offer residents and non-residents who are 16 and older* to fish without a freshwater fishing license or recreational marine fishing registration (*Kids under 16 can always fish for free!)
