Ithaca Fishing and Conservation Day


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

The entire community is invited to come and experience a day of fun and education focusing on fishing and cold-water environmental conservation.

This event is free, although donations are appreciated. All proceeds raised benefit the youth-oriented environmental education activities of our local Trout Unlimited Chapter, which include the exciting Trout in the Classroom program that is currently in eighteen schools within six local school districts.

Programs planned throughout the day include: hands-on activities with one of our Trout in the Classroom fish tanks; a demonstration aquarium featuring live, locally collected aquatic insect specimens; free fly-casting and fly-tying instruction; and the opportunity to learn fishing and fly tying tips from masters from around the region. Special presentations on Paddle Sport Safety, Fly Fishing in the Delaware River Watershed, and the Resurgence of Lake Sturgeon in Cayuga Lake will be featured at the event.
