For those of you who enjoy heading out to Lake Ontario for the weekend, did you know that residents and visitors can fish for free in the New York waters of Lake Ontario (including the Lower Niagara River) and the St. Lawrence River without a state fishing license until September 2, 2019, at 5 p.m.? New and experienced anglers must adhere to all applicable state and federal laws and regulations. Information about fishing season dates, size limits, take limits, and other fishing requirements can be found at https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/117603.html
The next “Free Fishing Days” all across New York State will be on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Enjoy the summer while it lasts!
