Fishing in New York City? You bet! Each summer, Hudson River Park offers Big City Fishing, a free program, to those as young as five who are eager to learn how to fish and learn more about the Hudson River environment.
We provide the rods, reels, bait and instruction. Beyond learning how to fish, the program also provides participants with a first-hand opportunity to learn about river ecology and the many fish species that can be found in the river.
Participants can drop in a line and relax, or engage with environmental educators on such topics such as water quality, fish biology and more.
A fun and educational experience, Big City Fishing offers city-dwellers a unique option for outdoor family recreation.
