CANCELLED - Learn to Saltwater Fish

Join rangers to learn some tips and tricks for saltwater fishing on the San Pablo Bay. A limited number of poles will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. A valid California fishing license is required when fishing from the shore, not from the pier.

Due to the Omicron variant’s high infectivity rate, in situations where you cannot maintain social distance, we recommend that all participants wear a mask. Enhanced face coverings are strongly encouraged (e.g., KN95, N95, respirator masks, or double masks).

Please dress in layers and wear sturdy shoes. Remember to bring a fishing pole, water bottle, snacks, sunscreen, and a hat. No pets (except service animals) are allowed at this park. Park entrance fee is waived for participants. Adverse weather may cancel. Check the calendar on the morning of the event to see if it is canceled.

Registration is not required. For more information, contact Ranger Jeffrey at

Directions: Meet at the fishing pier in McNears Beach Park in San Rafael (201 Cantera Way). From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for Central San Rafael east. Take 2nd St east, which merges into 3rd St, and then turns into Point San Pedro Rd. Follow Point San Pedro Rd for 3.6 miles, turn right at Cantera Way, and follow to the large parking lot at the end. The pier is located on the bay off the east/middle of the lot.
