Has it been a while since youíve pulled out the old rod ín reel? Well, then this is the perfect opportunity to grab the family for some quality time out on the water at Monee Reservoir!

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is sponsoring free fishing days to help you do just that. One weekend in June has been set aside to sample the action without having to invest in a fishing license.

We have also added our own incentives. On Friday, receive a voucher good for a free one-hour boat rental (excludes paddle boats). On Saturday, receive a box of night crawlers and, on Sunday, receive one free fishing pole rental.

Normal rules and regulations still apply on rentals, such as the requirement of a cash deposit and a valid driverís license. District policies also still apply, such as size and quantity limits.
