Event description

Description

Registration begins May 1.

Have you ever wanted to try fishing but didn’t know how to begin? Learn the fundamental basics of catch-and -release fishing at the Dumbarton fishing pier. Discover the types of wildlife living in the San Francisco Bay, learn the safety and ethics of fishing, and then try your luck out on the pier with our fishing poles. All participants receive free box with tackle. No fishing license needed. Space is limited to the first 55 people. You must arrive at 9 a.m. to participate. Call 510-792-0222 ext. 476 for more information.

Important instructions on how to register:
Please enter the number of people who will require a fishing rod and reel. If there is a person who only plans to accompany the person who would like to fish, there is no need to include that person in the registration. That person can just show up.

Can I bring my own rod and reel?
Yes, you may. BUT, you will have to bring all of your own tackle (hooks, sinkers,etc.). The refuge only has enough tackle for those using our fishing rods.

Please let us know if you have to cancel for any reason. This event is very popular and usually has a waiting list. Your cancellation will allow others to participate.
