Event details

Anglers, you’re not dreaming. We are keeping the gates open until dark for nighttime fishing at Hidden Lakes Trout Farm. Fish often become more active at night when the water cools and only the moon lights the sky. Let the kids stay up late and bring the family to enjoy fishing under the stars.

Event requirements

No registration required. 

We recommend a flashlight and bug repellent. The concessions building will be open for sales.

Hidden Lakes is accessible from the parking lot to the fishing pier. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
