Event Details

Join us on Saturday, October 17th for fishing and family fun. 

CATCH-AND-RELEASE FISHING 10am-2pm
Join BPCPC’s Master Anglers and drop a line for some of the 30-plus species of fish that live in New York Bay (the Hudson River’s estuary). During Go Fish!, barbless hooks minimize injuries to both fish and participants. fish are placed in saltwater tanks for observation and identification before being released back into the Hudson. Live demonstrations and displays teach fish anatomy and heighten awareness of the ecology, flourishing marine life and current state of good health of the Hudson River and its estuary. Rods, reels and bait are provided for those who don’t bring their own.
