Fall Fishing Clinic & Outdoor Safety Event on Nov. 5

Grab your family and fishing poles and head out to Chandler’s five-acre lake at Veterans Oasis Park on Saturday, Nov. 5, for the 8th Annual Fall Fishing Clinic and Outdoor Safety Event. 

The free all-ages event is from 8:30 a.m. until noon at 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road and is hosted by the Environmental Education Center (EEC), Police Department, Fire, Health & Medical Department and Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD). In addition to fishing, there will be free information, activities and demonstrations focused on outdoor safety.  

Instructors will provide basic fishing tips and guidance and will have bait and a limited number of fishing rods for loan on a first come, first served basis. The Police Department will host an informational booth, and the Aquatics Division will provide information on water safety. In addition, a fire engine will be on display from 8:30-11 a.m., and be sure to stop by the EEC lobby for free crafts and activities.  

No fishing license is required during the clinic, but those wishing to fish must register at the AZGFD booth. Anyone fishing outside of the clinic hours will require a license. Visit azgfd.gov for information about fishing licenses and regulations. Fishing licenses and supplies are not available for purchase at the park. 

Inclement weather may cause the program to be altered or cancelled. Call the EEC Program Hotline at 480-782-2889 to obtain updates on the status of the fishing clinic and outdoor safety event.
