The free fishing days program is part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's NY Open for Fishing and Hunting Initiative and the upcoming free fishing days are the first of several planned for 2019, including June 29-30, Sept. 28 (National Hunting and Fishing Day), and Nov. 11 (Veterans Day). The free fishing days program began in 1991 to give people who might not fish a chance to try the rewarding sport at no cost, introduce people to a new hobby, and encourage people to support the sport by purchasing a New York State fishing license.
Winter anglers can catch a variety of fish while ice fishing, primarily perch, sunfish, pickerel, northern, and walleye. In addition, many waters throughout New York State are open to fishing for trout, lake trout, and landlocked salmon.
