Fishing is HOT for August!

Even though it has been extremely hot and dry, the fishing has been great throughout Lake Metroparks.  The water levels are down but our stocked ponds are still producing some fine catches. Several Lake Metroparks camp and program participants had a great time catching a lot of fish throughout August. Cooler evenings are a great time to enjoy a few hours of fishing at your favorite fishing hole.   Don't let summer end without another great day of fishing with your friends!
