Governor Cuomo’s NY Open for Hunting and Fishing Initiative is an effort to improve recreational activities for in-state and out-of-state sportsmen and sportswomen and to boost tourism opportunities throughout the state. This initiative includes the streamlining of hunting and fishing licensing and reducing license fees, improved access for fishing at various sites across the state, stocking as much as 900,000 pounds of fish, expanding fishing clinics and increasing hunting opportunities in various regions.

Information about the Angler Achievement Awards Program, including past winners and a downloadable application form, can be found on the DEC website or by contacting DEC Bureau of Fisheries by phone at (518) 402-8891 or by emailing the Fisheries. Program details and an official entry form can also be found in DEC’s current Freshwater Fishing Regulations Guide.
