Summer is finally here...let's go fishing!

It seems that Summer has finally arrived here in Lake County.  It's a great time for families to get out and spend some time fishing together.  Lake Metroparks has many free fishing areas that are regularly stocked to make for some great fishing fun.  We also offer beginning fishing programs and fishing camps for kids, check at for program listings and park locations.  Get your kids out for a day of fishing, hiking and picnicking....enjoy your Lake Metroparks and make some happy Summer memories.
