The Illinois Department of Natural Resources sponsors one weekend each summer to sample fishing without requiring a fishing license, and here's the bonus — it's Father's Day weekend! Dad gets a container of bait on the house and a small gift. House fishing poles are available free on loan. Regular fishing limits apply.

Fee: Free! Age: All ages. No registration required.

Shoreline fishing areas and sidewalks are accessible. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
