Has it been a while since you’ve pulled out the old rod ’n’ reel? Well, then this is the perfect opportunity to grab the family for some quality time out on the water at Monee Reservoir.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is sponsoring free fishing days to help you do just that. One weekend in June has been set aside to sample the action without having to invest in a fishing license. We have also added our own incentives.
On Friday, receive a voucher good for a free one-hour boat rental (excludes paddle boats).
On Saturday, receive a box of night crawlers and, on Sunday, receive one free fishing pole rental.
This program will run daily from Friday, June 14, to Sunday, June 16. Hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
No registration is required for this program.
Regular rules and regulations apply for rentals, such as a cash deposit and a valid driver's license.
District policies also apply, such as fish size and quantity limits. Learn more about fishing regulations.
Shoreline fishing and sidewalks are paved and easily accessible for all participants. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should call 708.534.8499, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
