Event description

Description

Are you interested in learning how to fish in NYC? Already fish in NYC but want to be more effective? Want to give back to the scientific community as an angler?

Join Randall’s Island Park Alliance at our first-ever Advanced Saltwater Fishing Clinic. These clinics are designed for anglers who already have a basic knowledge and understanding of fishing techniques and set-ups but would like to learn more “advanced” skills (e.g., tying knots, making rigs, understanding fish behavior). Join your fellow anglers, event leaders, and an ichthyologist for a fun and informative evening to help you be more effective when fishing out on the water!


Topics covered:

  • Bait, tackle and rig setups for successful fishing in NYC waters

  • How to read currents, tides, and shorelines to target specific fish species

  • How to tie species-specific fishing rigs

  • Fish biology and behavior

  • Safe and healthy eating of fish from the East River, catch and size limits, and other relevant regulations

  • Opportunity to learn about and try out baitcasting and spinning reels

  • New ways to systematically record your catch to help improve NYC’s fisheries!


Space is limited; registration is required
