Learn How to Fish: Free Clinic | Bay Area
The California Department of Fish and Game hosts a series of free “Learn to Fish” clinics at parks throughout the Bay Area.
These 45 minute clinics for kids 5-15 years of age, offer instruction in the basics of fishing including knots, casting, rigging, safety, ethics and urban runoff. All equipment and tackle is available to participants and anglers are required to use rods provided.
There is no charge for the clinics; however there may be a park entrance fee. Each adult may bring up to two children and a driver’s license is required for rod loan.
- These events are for children ages 5-15 only. Adults are not allowed to fish. Programs begin at 8 am and clinics begin about every 10 minutes with the final clinic starting at 10 am, or when they have reached the maximum capacity for the day which is usually 150 participants. You can fish until 11:30 am.
- There is no fee, although many parks do charge a parking or entry fee.
- A California’s Drivers license is required to check out a fishing rod. A maximum of two rods will be lent per adult.
