The Green United Clever Clovers would like to invite both the Lake and McHenry County 4-H kids (ages 8 to 18) and their parent/care giver for a 2 hour fishing clinic on Sunday, May 15th at 10:00 am at the Spring Grove Fish Hatchery.  The hatchery is located at:  2314 Hatchery Rd. Spring Grove, IL   We will also be able to go into the hatchery for a tour.

We will have a short 15 minute program beginning at 10 am and then we can fish until noon.  We will meet at the pavilion located at the hatchery.  Be sure to bring your fishing pole, fishing gear, and a fishing license if you are 16 and over. The only live bait that can be used here is worms, NO MINNOWS.

This is catch and release only.  For everyone’s safety, we do require an adult to be with the 4-H’er.  Adults (anyone 16 and over) will need a Illinois fishing license if they are going to fish along with the child or hold a pole in the water.
