Does your child love fishing? Have they always wanted to try?

In 2021, we will be offering special guided adventures to Lake Surprise, on our private Oatka Creek property, to allow visitors a chance to try their hand at fishing. Maybe you will land a sunfish, bass, or even the elusive carp (pictured above). Although we may catch some large fish, they will all be released by the end of the experience. 

  • Participants should dress for the weather and wear comfortable boots or shoes.
  • We encouraged everyone to wear a hat and protective glasses while fishing.
  • Participants over the age of 16 must have a fishing license. One-day passes can be purchased at Walmart for $5.00. 
  • Please arrive at the Nature Center Building for check-in 5-10 minutes early. All participants will be asked to stay with the group for the entire program.
  • Lake Surprise is located approximately ONE MILE from the Nature Center Building.
  • Masks required. Click here for more COVID-19 information.
