DEC will be holding a saltwater fishing and crabbing clinic at Corey Beach in Blue Point.

This event is arranged by the I FISH NY program of DEC in cooperation with the Town of Brookhaven. Attendees will learn fish identification, local aquatic ecology, casting safety and techniques, and fishing regulations. Following an educational introduction about fishing and crabbing on Long Island, I FISH NY will conduct basic fishing and crabbing instruction. The I FISH NY program of the DEC will provide instruction, fishing rods, and fishing bait free of charge. If you have crab traps or crab nets at home please bring them, along with a bucket and some raw chicken parts for crab bait. The I FISH NY Program has a limited amount of crabbing equipment.

No pre-registration required

Metered on-street pay parking and a metered municipal parking lot

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
