New for 2021, DEC streamlined its annual fishing regulations guide. By and large, contents in the new guide are limited to a summary of the laws and regulations anglers need to know before hitting the water. Waterbodies are now listed alphabetically by DEC region to make looking up regulations easier. Also, the guide’s smaller size will allow anglers to easily keep a copy in their tacklebox. You can download the new guide online and print it at home. Hard copies will be available in the near future wherever sporting licenses are sold.
