Notes:

All event dates are subject to change based on weather or any other environmental considerations. Every effort will be made to mitigate changes unless absolutely necessary.

All fishing events require a fishing license to actually fish. Licenses can be purchased for annual or one-day use ($54 and $17.54, respectively, at this time of posting). Disabled Veterans qualify for a reduced-cost annual license ($8.24 at this time of posting). If you need any help with the process for these feel free to reach out to us.

Check out other events offered at Cal Poly Humboldt here.

We understand that everyone has different schedules throughout the academic year. This is why we have set up an ongoing deal with Center Activities and the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center that VETS students (Veterans and dependents) can rent gear and supplies from either of the above locations and VETS will pay for it. Just let them know you are a VETS student!
