Looking to catch a new bike? Participate in the 2022 Fishing Derby to win fantastic prizes! All fishermen—and fishermen-to-be—are invited. It’s the ideal chance to introduce kids to this enjoyable recreational activity. An adult must be with children at all times. Want a pole? Pick one up at Irons Oaks. Need a hook? Worms will be offered. Fishing licenses for the State of Illinois and Dolphin Lake are required for people aged 16 and up. The derby is held in honour of the late William McDowell, a former H-F Park District Commissioner whose family continues to promote his passion for fishing and who donated our grand prize bicycle.
