Concord, NH – Take advantage of New Hampshire’s Free Fishing Day on Saturday, June 4, 2022. On Free Fishing Day, you can fish anywhere in New Hampshire — freshwater or saltwater — without a fishing license. Both state residents and nonresidents may participate. All other fishing regulations apply and must be followed, including season dates and bag limits.
“Free Fishing Day is a great opportunity for anglers of all skill levels to discover—or rediscover—what makes fishing in the Granite State so special, and it’s a great day for families to enjoy the outdoors together,” said Dianne Timmins, Inland Fisheries Chief for the NH Fish and Game Department. “Everyone is sure to be ‘hooked’ after an exciting day of fishing.”
Consider including a few “fishing holes” in your plan for the day as some locations may be crowded.
