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 pumpkinseed sunfish, carp or chain pickerel. Whether you chose to grab a simple bamboo pole at a quiet lake or join more advanced saltwater programs, we have a program that fits your skill level.

All equipment is provided; this program is recommended for ages 8 years and older. Participation is first-come, first-served.
