Basics of Freshwater Fishing

Join us at McInnis Park where rangers will teach tips and tricks of the trade of freshwater fishing at the park’s pond. This event requires a short walk up and down a large a hill to reach the park’s pond.

This event is ideal for all ages. All skill levels are welcome, and no experience is necessary. Wear comfortable athletic clothing and sturdy shoes. Don’t forget to bring a fishing pole. A fishing license is required for participants 16 and over. Friendly dogs are welcome but must be leashed.

No need to RSVP, just show up.

Directions: From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for Smith Ranch Rd east approximately 0.7 miles. Drive over the railroad tracks and immediately turn left to stay on Smith Ranch Rd. (If you go through the park entrance, you have gone too far). Look for the sign for the skatepark, turn right, and follow the road to the skatepark parking lot.
