The Doan Brook Watershed Partnership (DBWP) invites Northeast Ohio residents to “get hooked” and enjoy a day of free fishing and outdoor activities with friends and family at University Circle’s historic Rockefeller Park Lagoon on Saturday, July 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Family members of all ages will learn how to cast, tie knots and fish for bluegill, bass, catfish (and prizes) in the specially stocked lagoon with provided bait and tackle. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn how to handle and identify native Ohio fish, look at local aquatic life under a microscope, make a fish “print,” win a free rain barrel, participate in a mini stream clean-up and enjoy a free hot dog lunch. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE. The day hosts a fun way to learn the importance of clean water to our lives and local economy. Fishing equipment is available for children who do not have their own. Participants should bring a cooler and ice if they plan to keep their catches.

Advanced registration required: call DBWP at 216-325-7781. Free parking is available in the adjacent VA Hospital Garage, 10701 East Blvd., Cleveland, Ohio 44106. Follow us on Facebook for more details.
