Addition to HUNTFISHNY App Makes Fishing in New York State Easier and More Enjoyable
Unparalleled Mobile Access to Fishing Regulations, Waterbody Information, Species Identification, Stocking, and Much More
App Complements Existing Efforts to Simplify Fishing and Attract More Anglers to New York's Renowned Fishing Destinations
Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the State's new 'Tackle Box' mobile phone feature to enhance fishing-related tourism by making it easier for new and experienced anglers to enjoy the great fishing offered throughout New York. The new Tackle Box feature builds on the State Department of Environmental Conservation's HuntFishNY smartphone app to provide a one-stop location for nearly all State fishing regulations, waterbodies, State-operated fishing access sites, stocking information, and other useful features like photos to help identify fish likely found in a certain river, lake, or stream.
