Fishing in the City - San Bernardino, Riverside and Imperial Counties

Creating opportunities for fishing, outdoor recreational experiences, and aquatic education for families.

Teaching kids and parents to fish by giving them the tools they need to return to fish on their own is the foundation of our work. All programs are offered at very low or no cost at all. Our hope is that families will become “hooked” on fishing, and thus their children will be inspired by the outdoors and our natural resources. We can think of no greater conservation tool, than our youth inspired and passionate about our natural resources.
