Fishing in the City - San Francisco Bay Area

Learn-to-Fish clinics are now being scheduled for Winter 2023 and Spring 2024. Please check back for updates.

New online Learn-to-Fish videos are available. These were designed for adults wishing to try the sport for the first time as well as parents wanting to teach their child to fish. Parents may want to read this guide to help you teach your child to fish.

Community Fishing and Watershed Education programs provide opportunities to enjoy aquatic resources while helping community members understand the role they play in maintaining clean and healthy waterways.

This is achieved through the cooperation of community institutions including schools, service clubs, local government, park agencies, water districts, storm water pollution prevention programs, tackle retailers, CDFW and anyone else that is interested in kids, fishing and clean water.

The ultimate goal is to create repeatable fishing experiences, improve recreational opportunities for residents of your community, and to create stewards of our waterways. More on partnerships
