Submitted By Adrienne De Ponte
The Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center, a facility and program of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District, is offering the community a chance to go fishing with an expert naturalist. Join fisherman and naturalist Patrick Downs during this special Spring Break Camp.
We're taking our poles on the road! From the San Francisco Bay to Lake Chabot in Castro Valley. We have fished the salty waters of the marsh; now let's put our skills to the test in a freshwater lake! Here's your chance to practice in a completely different fishing environment, targeting freshwater species of fish like Rainbow trout and Largemouth bass. Meet naturalist Patrick Downs at Lake Chabot Regional Park for two afternoons of fishing fun. Practice your fishing skills while we learn about the differences between saltwater and freshwater habitats.
We have poles to lend, but feel free to bring your own gear. Dress to get a little dirty and be prepared for any weather. Bait provided, but bring water and a lunch in a backpack. Parents are welcome to join, but please let the camp leader know in advance. All anglers over 16 years old need a valid fishing license. Space is limited! Ages 7 to 15.
$85 for residents
$95 for non-residents
