A little preparation goes a long way in ensuring a successful fishing day. Here are some things to bring:

  • Basic fishing gear: rod and reel, fishing line, hook, bobber, weight, bait, or flies
  • Appropriate clothing: a hat and sunscreen for a sunny day or rain gear for inclement weather

Fishing License not required
