Event details

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 only the moon lights up the water. Let the kids stay up late and bring the family to enjoy fishing under the stars.

Event requirements

No registration required.

The parking lot is well lit, and the shoreline is accessible; however, anglers are encouraged to bring a flashlight and bug repellent. The concessions building will stay open; no boat or equipment rentals are available.

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.
