Was able to find the info. no entry fee so free to kids aged 8-15 fishing derby This Saturday from 10am-noon. Free giveaway to every kid who enters and prizes. Free bait provided as well.
Doing a job in cherry valley right now and saw a sign for a kids fishing derby this Saturday (I believe this Saturday), does anybody have any info on this such as time or is sign up needed? Confirm date? Tried to find it online but no luck. Thank you,
I grew up in CV. Went to grade school and high school with the village president. Have tried many ways to ice fish there. Offered to sign waiver. The answer is still no. I understand why,to many liability issues to worry about.
There are signs in park that says no ice fishing.....
No boat allowed don’t mean no ice fishing. Many Cook Co forest preserve like Axehead and Belleau lakes don’t allow boat but okay for ice fishing at your own risk. I pissed off that Lake Sule don’t allow ice fishing because someone fell in and park district shut down ice fishing! I believe that should have sign at lake said your own risk for ice fishing!
@vexilarman I doubt So. Beloit will ever allow it. It took 50 years to finally allow boats w/o gas motors there. The park has been closed the last 18 months due to high water. That town has a good ole boy system and it stuck in the 50's pretty much. NIMBY mentality.
You could try,but I would bet it won’t fly. It’s a liability issue. That’s why no boats are allowed. Another case of the lawyer’s screwing up things for everyone.
Let's do it
We need to start a petition to allow ice fishing here and also Victoria in S Beloit
No ice fishing here!It does suck!
