They are giving reciprocity to all boardering State's recreational saltwater license holders as long as those States do the same.

NJdiver beat me to it. LOL thanks NJd

Connecticut
What is a reciprocal license privilege? (Is there reciprocity with any other states?)
Connecticut law allows non-resident anglers who hold a marine waters fishing license in New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire or Maine to fish in the marine district and land marine fish in this state without a Connecticut license provided the state issuing the marine license affords the same privilege to resident Connecticut marine license holders.
Quote:
New York
Are there any reciprocal license agreements with other states where marine waters form boundaries with other states?


Yes, in certain waters, if a state grants New York recreational marine fishing license holders fishing privileges in that state's portion of the boundary water(s), then New York grants appropriately licensed anglers from that state the privilege to fish in the New York portion of the boundary water(s) without securing a New York recreational marine fishing license:
  • Connecticut: those parts of Long Island Sound lying between New York and Connecticut
  • New Jersey: those parts of New York Harbor, Hudson River, Kill Van Kull, Arthur Kill, Raritan Bay, and Atlantic Ocean lying between New Jersey and New York, and
  • Rhode Island: those parts of Long Island Sound, Block Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean lying between Rhode Island and New York.
The point is moot with New Jersey as they will have to register with the Feds. So the answer to the question is Rhode Island and Connecticut : those parts of Long Island Sound lying between New York and Connecticut

You know, the worst part for me living in NY concerning this license is that I KNOW that the extra money is just going to be wasted! THAT"S why NY DEC was so quick to push for this is because they didn't want the Feds to have that money- at least if the FEDS took it, I would feel that there would be a little more likelihood that the money would go to good causes because they (the FEDS) would be beholding to a group of states, not individuals like here in NY.

RHODE ISLAND
JAN 5 2010
The House and Senate voted to override Carcieri's veto of a bill to ban recreational saltwater fishing in Rhode Island without a fishing license.

Read More

The license will cost $7 for state residents, $10 for those who don’t live in Rhode Island, and will be free for residents who are 65 or older or in active military service. Seven-day licenses would also be offered for $5 for both residents and nonresidents. Like freshwater licenses, they will be available at bait shops and retailers.

Those fishing in violation of the chapter would be guilty of a civil infraction and would be fined $10 for the first offense, $50 for the second and $100 each for subsequent offenses. The money raised will fund administration of the licensing program and support fisheries management and improvement.

New York and Rhode Island will grant reciprocity.

Alright I'm going to ask the question even after I read the posts again: are all costal states (Maine, New Hampshire, Mass., Rhode Island, CT, NY) allowing each other to fish in those with saltwater licenses or is that not defined yet?

Reciprocity, although not universal, is granted to nearby States by most. So far.

OK Just so we are all clear on what is what here.

If you fish in a state that requires you to purchase a Saltwater fishing license this means you are registered automatically in MRIP aka (SARP)
Marine Recreational Information Program

However if you are registered through MRIP and want to fish areas where a license is required you are obligated to purchase that states license.
Most of these coastal states are honoring the border neighbor states reciprocity if that neighbor state requires a license.

I hope this clears it up somewhat.

As of this writing you can fish Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey with your Connecticut saltwater license. To fish New Jersey, Massachusetts and Maine you are registered automatically with MRIP via your Connecticut saltwater license.
You are required to purchase an out of state saltwater license for non border states.
For example - I live in Pennsylvania - I purchase a New York out of state saltwater license and its 15 bucks. It allows me to fish in Connecticut and Rhode Island. To fish New Jersey, Massachusetts and Maine I am registered automatically with MRIP via my NY license - however I also think it prudent to have the MRIP card in my wallet. (although not necessary)
To fish Delaware, Virginia, Maryland and the Carolinas saltwater I would have to purchase additional out of State Saltwater Licenses.

I hope this makes it clearer.

NOW - Keep in mind this federal registration (MRIP) is for anadromous species (saltwater fish that spawn in freshwater) like shad, striped bass, herring or smelt. However the state licensing is required for all saltwater species.

Footnote. As of January 2011 the states of Massachusetts and Maine will likely have an out of state licensing program set up. New Jersey appears to be the lone holdout.

One final Note. You do not need a saltwater fishing license aboard any charter, guide, party boat or head boat.
The Captains of said charters are responsible for the catch reporting.
