New York State residents and visitors will be able to fish for free without a fishing license this weekend, June 27 and 28. In a statement released last week, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said, “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.” Anglers are reminded that although the requirement for a license and enrolling in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry has been waived during free fishing weekend, all other regulations remain in effect.
