Kids Can Learn to Fish at Rockefeller Park Lagoon

Sat 10/23 @ 10AM-noon & 1-3PM

If you’ve spent any time along Cleveland’s eastern lakefront, especially at the 55th Street Marina, you’re seen the huge number of people of all ages fishing, in all kinds of weather. Some are equipped with an array of gear, showing how seriously they take their fishing!

Doan Brook Watershed Partnership and Cleveland Metroparks Youth Outdoors want to encourage this by teaching the next generation of fisherpeople (although you already see a lot of kids down on the lakefront with their parents or grandparents).

Their family fishing workshop, taking place at Rockfeller Park Lagoon (in the south end of the park across from the tennis courts), invites kids (and their parents) to come learn the basics: what kind of tackle you need, what bait to use, how to cast, how to identify, clean and prepare varieties of fish. Then participants can try out what they’ve learned on  the trout-stocked lagoon.

You can bring your own rod and reel or borrow one; they’ll provide the bait. If you plan to keep your catch, bring a cooler and ice. A fishing license isn’t required.

Go here for information on how to register for one of the two sessions.
