Tomorrow, September 24th will be a fish for free day in New York State. Tomorrow is one of six free freshwater fishing days that are held annually in the station and coincides with national hunting and fishing day, which celebrates the outdoor activities that are significant contributors to the state’s economy.
“From Babylon to Buffalo, Free Fishing Days are a great opportunity for New Yorkers to enjoy the outdoors at one of New York State’s many world-class fishing locations,” Governor Hochul said. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of this weekend’s Free Fishing Day, support New York’s local economy, and see the benefits of our extensive conservation efforts to protect and enhance our natural resources.”
For free fishing day, it is not just for New York residents, but also non-residents in the state. Everyone will be allowed to fish in the state’s freshwaters for free without a fishing license.
Though the day is free freshwater fishing, all other fishing regulations will remain in effect. The last free fishing day for this year will be on Veterans Day, November 11th.
