Trout Fishing for Kids offered at Wood Dale Grove March 25

Kids are invited to feel the thrill of catching a fish at "Trout Fishing for Kids" on Saturday, March 25, at the Wood Dale Grove Forest Preserve in Wood Dale.

Ages 15 or younger can get a chance to fish the 9-acre Grove Lake after it has been stocked with rainbow trout but before the official spring opener on April 1, giving them a better chance to catch fish.

Family members, age 16 or older, are welcome to join the young anglers but may not fish themselves.

The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County program will be 8 a.m. to noon. The entrance to Wood Dale Grove Forest Preserve is on Wood Dale Road, half-mile north of Lake Street.

The event is free and registration is not required.

Some equipment will be available for loan, but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear. Bait is provided.
