Catch-and-release fishing at the Harlem Meer has become a favorite community pastime in Central Park, and the Meer has become the preferred fishing area in the Park. Fishing poles are available to borrow at The Charles A. Dana Center, located on the north shore of the Meer. Picture ID required; instruction and bait (corn kernels) are provided with the poles.
The Harlem Meer is a thriving aquatic ecosystem that supports a wide variety of fish, waterfowl, turtles, plants and microorganisms. Some of the fish living in the Meer include largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, bluegill sunfish, carp, and chain pickerel.
