Introduce Young Anglers to Trout Fishing at Pres-season Program March 26 at Wood Dale Grove

Special early access to stocked lake just for kids

Kids ages 15 and under are invited to feel the thrill of catching a fish at “Trout Fishing for Kids” on Saturday, March 26, from 8 a.m. to noon at the DuPage Forest Preserve District’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.

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.
