June is a busy time for free fishing clinics in New York with over 25 scheduled clinics. At free fishing clinics, participants can fish for free; no freshwater fishing license or enrollment in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry is required. In addition to fishing, participants can learn about fish identification, fishing equipment and techniques, fisheries management, angling ethics and aquatic ecology.
