Where can I borrow a fishing pole or get bait?
Fishing poles will be available at the park entrance at at the east picnic area during the morning's fishing derby.

What's the deal with the "floatilla" thing?
The goal of the Fill the Lake Floatilla will be to pack the lake full of paddlers and then take aerial photos with a drone. The footage will be used in future marketing and advocacy efforts to raise awareness of water quality and recreation on the lake. If you want to join in, bring your canoe/kayak and join us just out from the beach. Weather permitting, the drone photo will be taken at 2:00 PM.
