The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will host a free fishing clinic for kids at Glazebrook Park August 10th through the 13th. There will be a half hour class taught on fishing followed by an hour and a half of catch and release fishing. The event is free and fishing poles and bait will be provided.

Spokesman Scott Isringhausen tells the Big Z space is limited and they ask that an adult be present with their child.
