Here's your shot to give fishing a try or just break out the poles for a weekend if you have been slacking on getting your fishing license this year.

If the thought of sitting out by the lake relaxing in the great outdoors for the day while trying to catch your dinner is something that you are interested in trying out, getting back into, or maybe you just haven't had to to get your fishing license this year then you are in luck!

This weekend the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has FREE Fishing Weekend coming up this weekend! According to June 23rd and 24th anyone can fish the fresh waters in New York State for free and no license is required! This includes residents and non residents alike. So bust out those rods and make a little time this weekend. Now although this weekend is free and you don't need a license you will have to follow the rest of the NY state fishing regulations which you can brush up on by clicking here.

New York offers a few free fishing days and weekends throughout the year so if you want to plan ahead for the next couple coming up are September 22nd and November 11th pf 2018!
