This weekend only, New York State residents will have the chance to fish for free, without a license.

According to WIVB, June 29th and 30th will be New York's "Free Fishing Weekend."

According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York's "Free Fishing Weekends" help encourage more people to get outdoors and enjoy the fishing opportunities available.

“Free Fishing Days provide both amateur and seasoned anglers with the chance to try the sport out for themselves or introduce others to the world-class fishing and scenic destinations across the Empire State,” Cuomo said.

Participants in Free Fishing Weekend are reminded that even though the license requirement is waived these two days, other fishing regulations remain in effect.
