Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Nov. 6 that New York State would be offering a free fishing day to honor veterans on Nov. 11.

New York residents and non-residents can fish for free, without a license, on Veterans Day.

The Veterans Day Free Fishing Day is just one way to acknowledge the contributions of our veterans while offering the opportunity to enjoy some of the best fishing spots in the nation, right here in the Empire State.
