Learn where the fish are biting and where fish have been stocked within the parks.

Get out and Fish!

It looks like a beautiful weekend to get out and fish!  Lake Metroparks ponds are all fishing well especially at Girdled Road Reservation and Hidden Lake.  Take advantage of this beautiful weather and go wet a line.

Jessica proudly shows off the fish she caught at the new Lake Metroparks GO FISH! program.
