The sport of fishing is one of the best ways to connect people of all ages to the outdoor world. Attending a fishing clinic can provide a great introduction to the sport and provide answers to the many questions you may have. Approved free sportfishing clinics waive the requirement of participants to possess a fishing license or enroll in the Recreational Marine Fishing Registry (during program hours only). All other applicable fishing regulations remain in effect during an event. Organizations or groups interested in conducting a free sportfishing clinic should fill out the Application to Conduct a Free Sportfishing Clinic (PDF) (278 KB) at least 30 days prior to the planned event.
