In 2002, the urban fishing program, "I Fish NY," began to increase participation in fishing and promote outstanding fishing opportunities in NY.


The program includes free fishing clinics, fishing rod loaner programs, train-the-trainer fishing education events, and in-school programs in NYC and Long Island. Learn more on our I Fish NY webpage. #DEC50
