Free Fishing Day; NH Children in Nature Champs; Healthy Trout Event
Start making plans to get out and go fishing on Free Fishing Day -- Saturday, June 7, 2014. On Free Fishing Day, you can fish anywhere in New Hampshire – freshwater or saltwater -- without a fishing license. All other fishing regulations must be followed on Free Fishing Day, including season dates and bag limits. Free Fishing Day coincides with Hatchery Open House Day in New Hampshire, so plan to stop in and visit one of New Hampshire's six state-operated trout hatcheries. Also on June 7, come try the latest gear, lures, flies, rods and kayaks at the Free New England Demo Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Contoocook River Canoe Company, 9 Horse Hill Road in Concord, N.H. Fish and Game biologists will be on hand to help you discover that hot fishing spot near you. Read more: http://www.wildnh.com/Newsroom/2014/Q2/free_fishing_day_2.html.
