NEW LONDON (WFSB/CT) -

Families can receive a free fishing license in New London Saturday.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental protection will allow a one-day free license as part of their annual Saltwater Fishing Day.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fort Trumbull State park.

"Combining the annual saltwater fishing day with free fishing license day provides families the opportunity to plan an outing focused around fishing together as each family member," said DEEP officials.

Anyone 16 years or older can obtain the license. Non-residents are also eligible.
