Central Park Fishing

Started in 2018, Central Park Fishing Group’s goal is to build a community of people who enjoy taking advantage of New York City’s green spaces and go fishing in iconic Central Park.

What to know about the group:

  • Free to join!
  • All experience levels welcome. If you have never fished before or you are a professional, we would love to have you participate
  • We follow all city and state fishing guidelines. This means everything is catch and release, barbless hooks, no live bait
  • Rods, reels and tackle are all free to borrow if you need equipment
  • Free fishing lessons provided for anyone who needs some assistance

We hold fishing sessions throughout the year. Outings are typically 2 hours and we go out after work and on the weekends. Join the group and get access to notifications for our upcoming events.
