Free Fishing Clinic

Water is not in great abundance in New Mexico, so any activity that encourages water recreation is great by us. Fishing definitely ranks right up there.

If you’ve always wanted to learn more about fishing, or if you already fish but would like to improve your skills, here’s a fun event for you. The city is offering a series of FREE fishing clinics at Tingley Beach! These all-ages events occur on the second Saturday of each month through November, and take place from 10:00am – noon. The specific 2009 dates are:

  • July 11
  • August 8
  • September 12
  • October 10
  • November 14

You’ll learn about fly-rod fishing, rod casting, fly tying, and basic fishing etiquette. This event is for grown-ups and kids alike — but what a great way to introduce a kid to the fun of fishing!

No advance registration is required; just meet at the event tent, located on the grassy area just south of the train station.

Tingley Beach is located on Tingley Drive, just south of Central Ave west of downtown Albuquerque.
