SANTA FE – Saturday is National Hunting and Fishing Day and to celebrate, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is offering free fishing in the state.
Residents and non-residents of all ages can fish without a license at public waters in New Mexico.
“We want to encourage New Mexicans to get out with their families and enjoy their wildlife resources, and celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day on free fishing day is a great way to do that,” Department Fisheries Chief Mike Sloane said.
Game and Fish and New Mexico State Parks are also partnering to provide a day of family fun at Fenton Lake State Park. Department staff will be on hand to give expert instruction and hands-on training in outdoor skills such as fishing and archery.
First-time anglers are encouraged to come learn a new skill.
Activities at Fenton Lake will be from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and will include free archery and fishing instruction, aquatics education and more.
The state park charges a $5 per vehicle day-use fee. Walk-in entry is free.
Fenton Lake State Park is owned by the State Game Commission and managed by New Mexico State Parks.
For more information about National Hunting and Fishing Day activities at Fenton Lake State Park, call 575-829-3630.
