This ongoing program will run from Friday, June 14, to Sunday, June 16. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Take advantage of the free fishing weekend sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Now’s your chance to fish without a license. Hidden Lakes is offering added incentives to get you out. On Friday, grab a free container of nightcrawlers, Saturday you can pick up a free promo item, and on Sunday enjoy a tasty treat – candy, chips or ice cream. Let’s not forget about the fathers out there! All dads who visit the Tackle Box on Sunday can help themselves to any of the abovementioned items!

Fishing poles are also available to rent for free courtesy of IDNR. State fishing rules and regulations apply.
