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 buy a fishing permit at the Tackle Shop. We will provide up to ten rental poles at no charge to a responsible adult with the understanding that any damage to equipment will be paid for by the group at our replacement cost, approximately $40 per rod and reel. 

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!
