Fishing & Crabbing are permitted along the seawalls and shoreline of the Hudson River within the park, anywhere signs are not posted prohibiting these activities, including our riverfront picnic areas and along the length of the Shore Trail (trails are “carry in–carry out” — all trash must be carried back out with you and disposed of properly). Bait is not sold in the park.

Licenses are not required, but New Jersey State fishing regulations are in effect and enforced, and anyone over the age of 16 must hold a New Jersey Saltwater Registry permit. (The permit is free — click here for more information.)

Common species caught along the Palisades include catfish, striped bass, white perch, tomcod, eels, and blue-claw crabs.
