Family Fishing Day

Doan Brook Watershed Partnership will host the 18th Annual Family Fishing Day on Saturday, July 13 from 9am-2pm. Come out and enjoy a day of free fishing and outdoor activities with friends and family at University Circle’s historic Rockefeller Park Lagoon.

Family members of all ages will learn how to cast, tie knots, and fish for bluegill and catfish in the stocked lagoon with provided bait and tackle.

Participants will also have the opportunity to:

-Learn how to handle and identify native Ohio fish

-Look at local aquatic life under a microscope

-Enter a raffle for prizes including tackle boxes and fishing equipment

-Enjoy a variety of arts and crafts

-Fill up with a free hot dog lunch.

Fishing rods and equipment will be available for children (15 and under) who do not have their own, but only while supplies last. Advanced registration is now closed. However, a number of rods are reserved for walk-ups on the day of the event and they will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Additionally, any rods reserved in advance that are not claimed by 10:30am will be considered open to walk-up registrants.

Participants should bring a cooler and ice if they plan to keep their catches. No fishing license is required to fish in the lagoon.

Free parking is available in the adjacent VA Staff Parking Garage, 10701 East Blvd., Cleveland, Ohio 44106 (entrance off Magnolia Dr.).

Advanced registration is now closed. There will still be a number of rods available for walk-up registration on the day of the event. For more info contact Andrew at 216-325-7781 ext. 6783 or klooster@doanbrookpartnership.org.
