Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has designated Saturday, August 15, as the second of two “Free Fishing License” days scheduled for 2015.
The designated “Free Fishing License” days are one of DEEP’s initiatives designed to connect people with outdoor activities and Connecticut’s natural resources.
August 15, 2015 is also the Saltwater Fishing Day, held at Fort Trumbull State Park in New London, sponsored by the No Child Left Inside Program and the Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) program.
Combining the annual saltwater fishing day with free fishing license day provides families the opportunity to plan an outing focused around fishing together as each family member 16 years of age or older can obtain a free one-day fishing license.
