The I FISH NY Program's primary goal is to increase fishing participation and awareness of the outstanding fishing opportunities that New York has to offer. Free Fishing Clinics are family fishing programs where participants can fish for free; no fishing license or enrollment in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry is required. To learn more, visit the I Fish NY Website.

Please register only if you plan on attending. While spaces are limited at each event, there are many events to choose from throughout the summer!

This is a family program. Children under the age of 18 must be supervised by an adult at all times. Drop-offs are not allowed. Younger siblings, children who have not attended camp before, or have aged out of camp are all welcome!
