Two new docks offer better fishing access!

Lake Metroparks has recently added two new fishing docks, one at Hidden Lake (now open) and another at Girdled Road South(opening soon).  Both docks offer better access to the water for more fishing opportunities at these stocked locations.  While it's been a hot and dry summer the fish are still biting at many Lake Metroparks locations.  Get out right after dinner and enjoy a few hours of fishing while the cooler evening hours set in.
