CONCORD, NH — Take advantage of New Hampshire’s Free Fishing Day, Saturday, June 1, 2019. On Free Fishing Day, you can fish anywhere in New Hampshire – freshwater or saltwater – without a fishing license. Plan to get out and enjoy the day fishing with your family and friends. Both state residents and nonresidents may participate. All other fishing regulations must be followed, including season dates and bag limits. Anglers participating in a state-approved fishing tournament that day will still need to purchase a license.
“Free Fishing Day is a great opportunity for anglers to take someone interested in ‘testing the waters’– or for friends and families to plan a day enjoying the outdoors together,” said Jason Smith, Inland Fisheries Chief for the N.H. Fish and Game Department. “They are sure to be ‘hooked’ after a relaxing day of fishing.”
For details on fishing rules for various waters, consult the New Hampshire Freshwater and Saltwater fishing digests, available at www.fishnh.com/fishing/publications.html.
