Event details

No, anglers, you’re not dreaming. We are keeping the gates open until midnight for nighttime fishing. Fish often become more active at night when the water cools and the moon is full. Let the kids stay up late and bring the family to enjoy fishing under the stars.

Event requirements

No registration required.

The concessions building will be open for sales; no boat or equipment rentals will be available. 

The parking lot is well lit, and the shoreline is accessible; however, anglers are encouraged to bring a flashlight and bug repellent. 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.
