<![CDATA[Freshwater Fishing]]> Date: June 29, 2014

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. You can try to hook a largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, carp or chain pickerel. 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 fishing programs are first-come, first-serve. Families and children ages 8 years and older are welcome to participate in fishing programs.

Start time: 12:00 pm
