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. 

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