The Forest Preserve is hosting its annual Adult Fishing Derby, sponsored by Cabela’s.

We invite you to find the best spot along the shore and try your luck at catching fish.

Prizes valued at hundreds of dollars will be awarded for the most panfish, biggest bass and biggest catfish. Pack a lunch and bring your favorite fishing pole.

We provide one container of bait!

Winners of the derby will be announced as soon as results are tallied.
