ALBANY — People can fish for free on Veterans Day in New York state.

The state is waiving fishing license requirements for the day on Monday for both residents and non-residents. The Cuomo administration has waived the requirement on Veterans Day for several years.







The move is part of New York’s broader effort to encourage outdoor sports.

In general, people 16 years old and older must have a license to fish in New York.
