New Jersey DEP Fish and Wildlife offers spring and fall Free Fishing Days. In 2023 the first is Saturday, June 3, and the second is Saturday, October 21.
The June Free Fishing Day is held in conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week; the October date allows the public to take advantage of the fall trout stocking. Remember: on these days residents may fish on the Garden State’s public waters without a license or trout stamp. All other regulations, including size and daily catch limits, remain in effect.
