2023 NYS Free Fishing Days September
September 23, 2023
With 2023 right around the corner, here is a look at the DEC’s #NYSFreeFishingDays for the upcoming year. This is 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!).
