Busse Lake fishing derby returns Saturday
Cook County Commissioner Kevin Morrison will host a Busse Lake fishing derby in Busse Woods on Saturday.
The free annual event is from 9 a.m. to noon at Grove #25. Due to COVID-19 safety measures and capacity requirements, all participants must register in advance at District15@cookcountyil.gov or (847) 519-7674.
People with all experience levels are welcome to participate, and a fishing license is not required. Participants must bring their own fishing gear, including bait. Prizes will be given in a variety of categories.
The derby is co-sponsored by the Arlington Anglers, Shedd Aquarium, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioner Eira Corral Sepúlveda, Friends of Cycling in Elk Grove, and the Northwest Municipal Conference.
The in-person event is the culmination of a series of conversations hosted by Morrison during his Virtual Outdoors Week.
