State announces free fishing day

Anglers may fish for free in New Mexico on Saturday as the state celebrates National Boating and Fishing Week.

Anyone can fish free in public fishing waters throughout the state Saturday, but everyone must observe bag limits and all other rules and regulations. For more information, visit www.wildlife.state.nm.us/home/publications.

Anglers should check current fire restrictions before a trip.

For information about where to fish and what to use, consult the department’s weekly fishing and stocking report and the new Fishing Conditions and Trip Planner.

Maps of public fishing waters, lists of where to find family-friendly fishing and tips about how to fish can also be found on the department’s website.
