Kids Trout Fishing Program March 25 at Wood Dale Grove
(March 7, 2017) — Kids ages 15 and under are invited to experience the thrill of catching a fish at “Trout Fishing for Kids” on Saturday, March 25 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County’s Wood Dale Grove Forest Preserve in Wood Dale.
Kids get a great opportunity to fish 9-acre Grove Lake after it’s been stocked with rainbow trout but before the official spring opener, giving them a better chance to catch a fish. Family members 16 and older are invited to join the young anglers but may not fish themselves. The event is free and registration is not required.
Some equipment will be available for loan, but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear. Bait is provided. The entrance to Wood Dale Grove Forest Preserve is on Wood Dale Road 0.5 miles north of Lake Street. For more information, call 630-933-7248.
“Grab your fishing gear and join us for this fun morning of fishing for kids,” said Forest Preserve District Commissioner Marsha Murphy, District 1.
“What better way to get kids excited about fishing than to give them a special chance to catch a fish?” asked Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore.
The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County has been connecting people to nature for more than 100 years. More than 4 million people visit its 60 forest preserves, 145 miles of trails, five education centers and scores of programs each year.
