Free Fishing Day in NH
Saturday, January 18, 2020
New Hampshire offers two free fishing days each year, so make plans to get out and cast a line with family and friends. Try a new pastime that can last a lifetime.
Free fishing days are offered on:
- The first Saturday in June, and
- The third Saturday in January.
Persons participating in a fishing tournament must still hold a license, even on free fishing day.
Free Fishing Day Rules:
- State residents and nonresidents alike can fish any inland water – or saltwater – in New Hampshire that day without a fishing license.
- Note that season dates, bag limits and all other fishing regulations must be followed on Free Fishing Day.
For details on fishing rules, consult the New Hampshire Freshwater Fishing Digest.
