Why Fish New York?
People might not think about the fishing when they consider visiting New York, but they should. Saltwater fishing off the piers and coastlines of New York can provide over 300 species of fish at your disposal, and there’s nothing stopping you (besides needing a fishing license) from dropping a line in at Central Park. You’ll find people fly fishing and boat fishing throughout the state, but Adirondack Lake, Canadarago Lake, Otsego Lake, the Susquehanna River, and Goodyear Lake all provide some of the best fishing you could hope for.
Your license can be purchased online, and 1-day and 7-day options do exist, as well as free and reduced fee licenses for active duty military members and military veterans. That’s all the more reason to enjoy the world-class fishing New York has to offer for cold water, warm water, and salt water fish species.
