Fishing event a great catch for families at Pere Marquette State Park

The 28th annual Fishing Fair will include a wide variety of favorite activities from previous years. Participating children will find a new and improved 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, bowfishing stations where children can shoot at moving targets in a pool, or at a 3D target. Every child who completes at least seven stations will receive a prize and have the chance to catch a trout in the trout pond.

A 4,000-gallon mobile aquarium — Texas Bass Tanks with Brad Campbell — will be featured this year, stocked with many of the fish species found in the Illinois River. Fishing seminars will be presented all day, featuring local experts providing a variety of fishing information. “Camo the Clown” will be back at the fishing fair this year, and the Lodge Brothers will be returning as part of the event entertainment. There will be food available for purchase throughout the day.
