Fishing 101

If you’ve always wanted to try out fishing but weren't sure where to start, come out to this free program to learn the basics. All equipment is provided, but please bring your own bait (can be purchased at a vending machine at the lake). We’ll start with basic instruction, then you’ll have time to fish on your own with park staff available to assist. No fishing license is required to participate.

Spaces are limited so please register to secure your equipment.

Ages 10 and up only, please.
