Cast a net in New York

Cast a net in New YorkTravelers who find themselves in the New York region later this week may be interested to learn they can retrieve their fishing rod from their hostel and enjoy the hobby without fear.

In fact on 27th June 2009 until 28th June 2009, backpackers can take to the waters and angle for fish without worrying they might fall foul of the law.

A license is required by anyone over the age of 16 who wishes to fish in New York state waters.

However, for two days only, this requirement will be waived and the fishing frenzy can commence.

There are a plethora of waters in which fishing enthusiasts and novices can submerge their hooks.

These include the Niagara Falls, the great lakes, the Finger and Indian River Lakes, and the Black, Salmon and Raquette rivers.

Situated close to the Canadian border, over 20 million travelers have ventured to the natural water formation that is the Niagara Falls to witness the most powerful waterfall in North America.
