Today is a free fishing license day. It's the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's annual saltwater fishing day. Anyone can obtain a free one-day fishing license to fish this day.
Redding officials say the free one-day license can be obtained through DEEP's website.
Connecticut has just about every type of fishing within 25 miles of just about every resident including trout, bass, pike, panfish, and saltwater species including striped bass, fluke, porgy or bluefish. Combining the annual Saltwater Fishing Day with Free Fishing License Day provides families the opportunity to plan an outing focused around fishing together as each family member 16 years of age or older can obtain a free one-day fishing license.
