About the fishing program: Join New York State Department of Environmental Conservation I FISH program for a free fishing clinic! The I FISH NY program promotes environmental stewardship through fishing and encourages New Yorkers to get outside. We provide the fishing equipment and bait, and if you have never fished before, don’t worry we will teach you! This program is for all ages, and we encourage everyone to come. If you have a young child, we just ask that parents fish with them.
