Big City Fishing is back in Hudson River Park! Come drop a line during this free catch & release fishing program all summer long.

More than 200 species of fish are found in the Hudson River and its tributaries, including over 85 species within HRPK’s Estuarine Sanctuary waters. This summer, join us on Piers 26 and 51 to make a fish wish, you might just get a bite.

Anglers ages 5 and up are invited to participate at this program, with parental supervision required. Our River Project team provides all the necessary equipment and an on-site fishing tutorial. Registration not required, participation is offered on a first come, first served basis. Beginners and experts alike are encouraged to join Big City Fishing for a relaxing and educational experience at the water’s edge.
