Default NJ Free Fishing Days June 16 and 17

In case you want to give the salt a rest..................

You know the saying, "If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is." Not so for New Jersey's Free Fishing Days. On June 16 and June 17 the Department of Environmental Protection is offering free samples of some of the finest freshwater fishing in the Northeast.

On these two special days, anyone can fish anywhere in New Jersey without a license or trout stamp. It's a perfect time for families and friends to discover the simple pleasures of fishing and enjoying time together in the outdoors. Existing anglers often make new fishing buddies by inviting friends and relatives to join them for a day on the water on Free Fishing Days. And as the word spreads about how much fishing has improved here, a growing number of out of state anglers come to New Jersey for their free sample in June.

New Jersey offers every type of fishing for every level of angler. Cold, clear streams support a top rate year-round trout fishery. Warmwater and coolwater fishing is spectacular as a result of the addition and development of fisheries for a number of popular game fish over the last 25 years. Muskellunge, walleye, northern pike, channel catfish and hybrid striped bass fisheries are now thriving and New Jersey anglers routinely catch many world-class sized fish. Outstanding statewide fisheries for largemouth and smallmouth bass, pickerel and numerous panfish species round out the smorgasbord of warmwater fishing choices available to New Jersey anglers.

The Division of Fish and Wildlife Web site, http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/fishing_fresh.htm has a wealth of information on fishing in New Jersey with very specific information on where to fish for trout and the various warmwater fish stocked throughout the state. There are three regional brochures available to help you find lakes and ponds with the fish you seek just a short drive away. The regional brochures contain information on each water's acreage, the nearest town, site amenities, boat and shoreline fishing, the fish available and fishing tips for each species. These brochures focus primarily on lakes and ponds with warmwater and coolwater fisheries. 'Where to' and 'how to' trout fishing information including directions to more than 300 trout fishing access points is also available on the Fish and Wildlife website at http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/fishpromo12.htm .

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~Henry David Thoreau
