Participants can learn about fish identification, fishing equipment and technique, aquatic invertebrates, and how to cook and clean fish during four, 15-minute instructional sections presented by DEC staff. During the second half of the session the group will split time between casting practice and fishing in a trout pond.

The event is free, and no fishing license is required to fish during the program. Fishing rods, tackle, bait and educational materials will be provided. The event is catch and release only. Children under age 16 must be supervised.

DEC sponsors several free fishing clinics throughout the state where possession of a fishing license is not required. Details on Free Fishing Clinics are available on DEC's website.
