Surfcasting is a popular pastime on Fire Island’s ocean beaches, have you tried it? After an introduction to fish, gear and local regulations, you can practice your surf casting technique using your own gear or borrow one of our rigs (supply is limited). Please bring a valid NYS Recreational Marine Fishing Registry card for anyone 16 or older, available for free through the NYS DEC website.
We ask the public to be our partner in recreating responsibly. Participants will be asked to follow CDC and local public health guidelines for COVID-19.
LOCATION: Wilderness Visitor Center: Take William Floyd Parkway (Route 46) to Smith Point County Park for access to the Wilderness Visitor Center, a small octagonal building on the right as you are headed south. Parking is available in the Smith Point parking lot just to the east/on the left (parking fees in effect).
