Youth Fishing Program

 All organized youth groups with reservations can fish for free at Lake Cuyamaca after performing at least an hour of community service at the lake, such as trash pick-up. Trash bags are provided at the Tackle Shop.

All members of the group 16 years of age and older must have a valid California State Fishing License.


Fishing adults must have a CA State Fishing License and a fishing permit.

Groups pay regular cost for camping and boat rentals. 


Please mail or email us a few photos of your group during their time at the lake. Thank you!
