Happy Trails Fishing Derby

Bait your friends and family with a morning of fishing fun at the Happy Trails Fishing Derby, a free event hosted in Jaycee Park on Saturday, September 15, from9:00-11:30 am.

All ages are invited to start the day at the park shelter learning about fishing etiquette. New anglers receive a quick fishing lesson. Then, it’s off to the pond to see what you can catch (and release)!

Participants must be willing to touch worms or come with a partner who will. Fishing poles, tackle and bait are provided or you can bring your own. Anyone over the age of 16 must have a current Illinois Fishing License.

Raffle prizes, goody bags and information on fishing are also included. Pre-registration is recommended, but walk-ins at the event are welcome. This event will be held rain or shine.

For more information, contact the Cary Park District at 847.639.6100 or visit to register.
