Kids Trout Fishing Program March 30 at Wood Dale Grove

Special early access to stocked lake just for kids

(March 6, 2019) — Kids ages 15 and under are invited to feel the thrill of catching a fish at “Trout Fishing for Kids” on Saturday, March 30 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 fish. Family members 16 and older are welcome to join the young anglers but may not fish themselves. The event is free and registration is not required.
New this year, participants will have a chance to win one of two free youth fishing poles in a raffle drawing at the event (poles provided by L.L. Bean). 

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 mile north of Lake Street. For more information, call 630-933-7248.
