Children and families are invited to a fun fishing event along the Ohio and Erie Canal just down the hill from CanalWay Center. Rainbow trout and catfish will be stocked prior to the event. Educational stations will provide opportunities for families to learn fishing skills or test their knowledge. Fishing will be open to anglers of all ages. Anyone age 16 years and older must have a current Ohio Fishing License to fish.
Prizes will be awarded in several fishing categories for youth under 16 years old.
Bring a rod, tackle and a cooler with ice to store the “catch of the day.” Bait will be provided and while supplies last, loaner rods will be available. The event is rain or shine and there is no pre-registration.
Golf cart shuttles will provide rides throughout the event for seniors and persons with disabilities.
For more information call 216-206-1010.
Note: To provide the best fishing opportunities for children, event waters will be posted closed to fishing from immediately after stocking (likely Thursday 10/12) until the start of the event.
