1:00 p.m.2:30 p.m.

Catch-and-release fishing is a great way to get outdoors and discover nature just a few blocks from home. 

Our experienced Urban Park 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 choose 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.
