Anglers can fish for free on all public waters in New Mexico Saturday, Sept. 24, as the state celebrates National Hunting and Fishing Day.

Residents and nonresidents can fish without a license but must abide by bag limits and all other fishing rules and regulations. Visit www.wildlife.state.nm.us for the 2016-17 Fishing Rules and Information booklet.

For information about where to fish and what to use, consult the department’s weekly fishing and stocking report. Maps of public fishing waters, lists of where to find family-friendly fishing, and tips on how to fish also can be found on the department website.
