Cary Park District to host fishing day

Bait your friends and family with a morning of fishing fun at the Happy Trails Fishing Derby, a free event from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 15 in Jaycee Park.

Start the day at the park shelter learning about fishing etiquette. New anglers receive a quick fishing lesson. Then, it’s off to the pond to see what you can catch (and release).

Participants must be willing to touch worms or come with a partner who will. Fishing poles, tackle and bait are provided, or you can bring your own. Anyone older than 16 must have a current Illinois Fishing License.

Raffle prizes, goody bags and information on fishing are included. Registration is recommended, but walk-ins at the event are welcome. This event will take place rain or shine.

For information, call the Cary Park District at 847-639-6100 or visit www.carypark.com to register.
