The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Pere Marquette State Park, near Grafton, on Illinois Route 100. The 26th Annual Fishing Fair will include activities from previous years, plus several new ones families will enjoy. Some favorites include a catch-and-release bluegill pond, where young anglers can have their photograph taken with their catch; the popular One-Cast station where everyone wins a prize; and the Bow-fishing Stations where children can shoot in a pool or at a 3D target.
There is no charge to attend the Fishing Fair or to catch a fish and parking is free. No license or fishing gear is needed. For more information contact: Pere Marquette State Park at (618) 786-3323 ext. 1 or Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge at (618) 883-2524.
