Governor Andrew Cuomo announced June 19 that next weekend New York State residents and visitors may fish for free without a fishing license in any of the state’s 7,500 lakes and ponds and 50,000 miles of rivers and streams. The June 27-28 also includes saltwater anglers, who may fish in marine waters for migratory marine fish species without enrolling in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry. Veteran’s Day, November 11, has also been designated as a free fishing day. “New York has some of the best fishing in the nation, and we’re making it easier than ever for people to come out and see all this state has to offer,” Governor Cuomo said. “These free fishing days are the perfect opportunity to cast a line and take in the great outdoors, and I encourage everyone to explore New York’s lakes and waterways this summer.”
