New York residents and visitors can fish without a fishing license the weekend of June 29th and 30th at any of the state's lakes, ponds, rivers or streams.

It's part of Governor's Cuomo's New York's Open for Hunting and Fishing initiative.

The DEC is reminding anglers that although a fishing license is not required during the free fishihg weekend, all other fishing regulations remain in effect.
