Ice fishing is the perfect way to spend a Michigan winter day! Come test the waters and take advantage of Free Fishing Weekend with us here at Kensington Metropark on the beautiful Kent Lake. Our program will begin indoors at the Nature Center to learn about the basics of ice fishing which will include various aspects of ice safety, proper technique for drilling your hole in the ice, and how to attract the fish. We’ll then head outside and hit the ice so you can try it yourself. If possible, bring your own ice fishing rod (inexpensive and available at many sporting stores). Dress to be outside, waterproof boots are highly recommended. If you want to have a seat while waiting for your big catch, a 5 gallon bucket is a great choice. Bait will be provided. Ages 6 and older. Please preregister, (810) 227-8917.
