The Fishing Line - Free Fishing Day, 11/11/22

Freshwater Fishing, Fisheries Management, and Fishing Access News

Anglers with northern pike.Friday, November 11th marks the sixth and final Free Fishing Day of the year. Selected to coincide with Veterans Day, it’s a nice way to pay tribute to America’s veterans. Through their service and sacrifice, we continue to have the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy our state’s great fisheries.

So, honor that special veteran in your life and head to your favorite local fishing hole to cast a line next Friday.

Not sure where to go? Visit our Places to Fish webpages or download the HuntFishNY app and tap on the new “Tackle Box” feature to plan your fishing trip.

During designated Free Fishing Days anglers do not need a fishing license to fish New York’s fresh waters. All other fishing regulations are in effect.
