Remember, in New York, a fishing license is required for anyone 16 and older! Check the takemefishing.org website for more details specific to NY regulations. Most importantly, practice safety!! Wear a life jacket, be cautious of changing water conditions, and only fish in areas deemed safe enough to do so!
