Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Catch-and-release fishing is a great way to get outdoors and discover nature just a few blocks from home.  Our experienced Rangers teach the ethics of fishing and the ecology of our waterways on every fishing program.  Participation in a mandatory safety review lead by a trained Ranger is required.  All equipment is provided.  All fishing programs are catch-and-release only and most programs are first-come, first serve.  Families and children ages 8 and years and older are welcome to participate in fishing programs.
