Try your luck on Free Fishing Day
CONCORD — Take advantage of New Hampshire’s Free Fishing Day Saturday, June 7.
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 on Free Fishing Day, including season dates and bag limits. One exception is that you still need a fishing license and a special permit to fish for brood stock Atlantic salmon in the Merrimack and lower Pemigewasset rivers.
“Free Fishing Day is a great opportunity for established anglers to take someone interested in ‘testing the waters’ or for families wishing to engage in an outdoor activity,” said Jason Smith, Inland Fisheries Chief for the N.H. Fish and Game Department. “They are sure to be ‘hooked’ after a fun day of fishing, and we hope they become established anglers themselves someday.”
