State Representative Jed Davis (R-Yorkville) invites District 75 constituents to attend a fishing derby on June 17th.
“As someone who spent many summer afternoons fishing with my grandfather, I look forward to the memories families will make at this event on Father’s Day weekend,” said Rep. Davis. “This derby is the perfect chance for families to come together and spend time outdoors at one of the many beautiful parks our state has to offer, all while learning more about fishing and wildlife.”
The derby is taking place at Silver Springs Park – Loon Lake, located at 13608 Fox Road in Yorkville from 10 AM to 12 PM. The first 75 kids to attend will receive free rods and reels, courtesy of the Future Anglers Foundation. T.E.A.C.H. Illinois and the Illinois Conservation Police will be on-site to host informational sessions about ways to remain safe while fishing, along with assisting participants with baiting hooks and reels. No fishing license is required to participate.
