CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is holding its very first free fishing day in the winter to give people a chance to try out ice fishing.

The date is Saturday, Jan. 21, for people to fish without a license in the state. The Legislature authorized the winter free fishing day last year; all other regulations must be followed.

Anglers participating in a fishing tournament must still hold a license, even on the free fishing day.

New Hampshire also offers a free fishing day on the first Saturday in June.
