New Jersey’s Free Fishing Day, October 17, 2020

Posted on August 28, 2020


Beginning in 2015, the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife began offering spring and fall Free Fishing Days on Garden State’s public waters.  The next Free Fishing Day is Saturday, October 17th.  The October date allows the public to take advantage of the fall trout stocking. Though youngsters under the age of 16 don’t need a license, these days provide a special benefit to adults to join in the fun without having to purchase a license or trout stamp.   Please remember: All other regulations, including size and daily catch limits, remain in effect.  For more information visit the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife website.
