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 led by a trained Ranger is required.  

All equipment is provided. Adults, families, and children ages 8 years and older are welcome to participate in all fishing programs.
