Family Fishing Festival 2002

Every year B.A.G. with the cooperation of the NYC Parks Department and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Hosts it's Family Fishing Festival at Kissena Park Lake. B.A.G. Members take time to introduce kids and their families to the sport of fishing. We provide the equipment and the instruction. We'll show you how to gear up, Catch, Handle and Release fish. You will also have a chance to win a brand new Rod and Reel Combo in addition to giveaways and trophies for the Biggest Fish.

This date coincided with the New York State "License Free Weekend" so that You would not be required to Posses a License to fish.

Kissena Park Lake is located on 164th Street, 3 Blocks south of the Long Island Expressway, and the lake is wheelchair accessible.
