CONCORD, N.H. -- Take advantage of New Hampshire’s second annual winter free fishing day on Saturday, January 20, 2018. That’s a day you can fish without a license in New Hampshire. Note that all other regulations must be followed. Learn more about fishing rules by reading the NH Freshwater Fishing or Saltwater Fishing digests at www.fishnh.com/fishing/publications.html.

 

Persons participating in a fishing tournament must still hold a license, even on free fishing day.

 

The State Legislature authorized the addition of the winter free fishing day in order to provide an opportunity for those interested in trying ice-fishing. Find more information about ice fishing in New Hampshire, including videos, a list of bait dealers, and more, at www.fishnh.com/fishing/ice-fishing.html.

 

This annual winter event will be the third Saturday in January each year for those who want to plan ahead. New Hampshire also offers a free fishing day on the first Saturday in June.
