Join us for a family fun night of fishing during a program  being offered at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s TimberRidge Adventure Center in Olathe.
Family Fishing Night is for all ages. A dinner of hotdogs, chips, and apples will be provided from 5 to 5:30 p.m.  This will be followed by fishing at Catfish Pond (one of three lakes on the property) from 5:30 to 7 p.m. with boats available.  Parents need to be able to assist their children with fishing.  We will end the evening roasting marshmallows at a campfire from 7 to 7:30 p.m.  Staff will assist with boats and can help with basic fishing questions. Note that life vests must be worn when boating.  Bring your own pole and tackle or we can provide a fishing pole.  We will also provide bait and marshmallows. Participants age 16 and older are required to have a Kansas fishing license, which will not be sold on site.
