Anglers Please Note Reciprocity
Marine license requirements are in place in New York, Rhode Island, Maine, and Massachusetts, and Connecticut maintains reciprocity with these states. However, Connecticut residents must hold either a CT Resident Marine Waters Sport or an All-Waters Fishing License to fish in the Marine District of Connecticut. This ensures that fishing practices comply with local regulations while allowing for the enjoyment of marine resources across state lines.
