Do they have one in Massachusetts?
New York has several through out the year...

MA had one in early June, I believe.

MA may also have one coming up during icefishing season.  I'll check and post if it does.

However, unlike NY, which appears to have 4 Free Fishing Days throughout the year, I believe MA (like most States) only has 1 or 2 during the course of a year.

I just checked.

MA only has a single Free Fishing Weekend (for freshwater) in June.  This past year's was June 2-3.

There is/was a separate Free Fishing Weekend later in June for salt water. 

However, unlike NY, MA does not have any Free Fishing Days during the icefishing season.

Would be a good day to come on down and check out the Salmon River in Pulaski. Go home with a nice salmon or steelhead.  :thumbup_smilie: :thumbup_smilie:

Also, FYI for those who have debated getting a NY license.  The NY license is valid for a full calendar year, regardless of when it is purchased.  So if you purchase a $50 out of state license today you are good until 9/13/2019.  It was a no brainer for me to get the annual license once I knew that.

Dito here with the no brainer. I'm good until 8/23/2019. All set to hit the ice out there this year and bring the boat out to Ontario for early browns
I fish every chance I get and enjoy every time I fish. They call it fishing not catchin
