The Let's Go Fishing Program is part of the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department's Aquatic Resources Education. The program facilitates angler education classes that teach basic ecological concepts, introductory fishing skills, and new ways to enjoy the outdoors.


Classes are designed primarily for first time anglers, age eight and older. They range from four to twelve hours, depending on discipline, and are taught statewide, year round, by trained volunteer instructors. Classes are offered in the following disciplines:


  • Basic Fishing
  • Ice Fishing
  • Fly Fishing
  • Fly Tying
