Fishing in the City - Sacramento Metro Area

Fishing in the City

The Fishing in the City Program was established in 1993 and serves Californians living in the Sacramento, San Francisco and Los Angeles metropolitan areas.  

The goal for the Sacramento area program is to teach youth and their families the importance of taking care of lakes and ponds while enjoying them, starting right here in their own back yard. We stock nine inner city ponds in the Sacramento area on a regular basis. We want families to come out and spend time together while learning to fish.

Each “learn to fish” clinic will teach fishing techniques, ethics, and safety while out fishing. We will also provide information about current ecological issues and ideas on ways you can help us conserve our state’s natural resources.

Use of our rods is provided free of charge for youth under 16 and to those over 16 who possess a fishing license.

  • Sponsored by CDFW, City, County, and Regional parks departments, and other organizations as noted.
  • Ponds stocked with Channel Catfish (April - October) and Rainbow Trout (November - March)
