Fishing is permitted at several CLC Public Conservation Areas. If you’d like a CLC Fishing Permit, there’s some things you’ll need to know!
Age requirements: Permits are required for all anglers 16 and older.
What does it cost? Permits are free. CLC suggests a donation to offset the costs of managing the Public Conservation Areas and the fishing permit program. You can make a gift below in the second form.
Can I ice fish? Ice fishing is permitted at the angler’s own risk. Shanties and motorized augers are not allowed. Be aware many sites have thin ice.
What else? This permit does not substitute for a New York State fishing license. In exchange for fishing privileges at CLC owned Public Conservation Areas, you’ll help as a Fishing Monitor! You’ll help CLC keep ponds and creeks clean, healthy, and well-managed. We expect anglers to remove all trash, follow all state and local fishing laws, and encourage others to do the same.
Please fill out the form below! Once received we will email you a copy of your permit.
