The DEC's website suggests these ideas for Free Fishing Days:
- Try fishing for the first time.
- Haven't fished in a while? Remember the joy of catching a fish again for free!
- Become an ambassador to the sport; take a friend fishing for the first time.
- Invite a friend to New York to fish.
- Take a spouse or significant other fishing.
- Take the family fishing...and don't forget the grandparents!
Another upcoming DEC event is an Accessible Fishing Clinic to be held Tuesday, September 28.
