The Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) programs are designed to introduce kids and adults to the wonders of water, fish and fishing. State-certified instructors pass along information and expertise they’ve gained while fishing the local waters for many years. Demonstrations and activities make learning fun for adults and kids alike, and most classes include a fishing trip to a local angling hot spot.

Class curriculum is designed for families and kids age 9 and up. The program covers fishing tackle, casting instruction, knot tying, safety, regulations and fish ID. Instruction and materials are offered free of charge.
