Spring is here and trout season opens in April in both New York and New Jersey. It's time to head inland and journey upstream in the watershed to enjoy freshwater woodlands and catch a fish. Now is the perfect time to get a start date and start planning an upcoming fishing trip.
New Jersey – April 8
New York State – April 1
Before you go, make sure you obtain a Freshwater Fishing license to fish, and remember to never exceed the limit of the number of fish allowed to be caught in one day.
Do you want to fish but are stuck in the city? No worries. You can try your luck freshwater fishing in Central Park. Enjoy!
