2018 FishNB Days are June 2nd-3rd
Both residents and non-residents that find themselves in New Brunswick on this coming weekend will have a great opportunity to take advantage of fishing our many inland waters, free of charge! Fish NB days fall on Saturday, June 2nd along with Sunday, June 3rd in 2018. On these days, whether or not you reside in the province or normally buy a fishing license, you can take advantage of many great inland angling opportunities, license free!
The province has a long and storied history in angling, and this is a way to celebrate that history and encourage everyone to get out and on the water! Wilderness Obsession sees this as a great opportunity for our readers to get out and not only enjoy this weekend, but take a young person fishing with you!
The Fish NB days come with a couple of caveats to remember, however. First, if you have had your license privileges suspended in this (or another) jurisdiction, you are not allowed to fish on these days. Secondly, if you are angling for landlocked salmon in the province and wish to retain one within 48 and 63 cm (fork-length), you would require a salmon license and the use of one of your four tags. And thirdly, anglers are reminded that normal fishing regulations still apply so you may wish to familiarize yourself with the fishing summary and regulations in force for the area where you will be angling! As the province notes on their website,
“All current bag limits, closures and other restrictions are still in effect on Fish New Brunswick Days. Access to private waters, Crown Reserve waters and Crown Leases is still restricted.”
Whether you’re a new angler to our province, or someone who perhaps hasn’t fished in a number of years… this is an excellent opportunity to get on the water! If you’re looking for tips, locations, or information on gear we suggest… feel free to contact us and we’ll respond to each one!
On Fish NB days, we know where we’ll be… out on the water with kids in tow! Will you?
(NOTE – if you have a Fish NB event you would like us to help promote, please feel free to contact us and we will definitely include your information!)
