Fishing Information

Cast out from the west promenade of Pier 5, where you’ll also find bait preparation tables and fish cleaning stations to help you “tackle” every fishing need.

Keep in mind that pregnant women, women of childbearing age and children under 15 years old should not eat fish caught in these waters. Others should also limit their consumption, as some fish caught in New York City waters may be harmful to eat.

For updates on water quality, consult the NYC Department of Environmental Protection’s Waterbody Advisory. For more information on safe fishing, please visit the New York State Department of Health.
