The Village restocked the children’s fishing pond at Whitesburg Nature Preserve on May 4th. This fishing area is intended for catch and release fishing only (Chapter 5.07.1) which prohibits removal of fish from the pond and permits catch and release fishing only in the designate children’s fishing pond. This pond provides a safe and enjoyable space for family fishing.
Tax dollars were not used for this restocking as it was fully funded with private contributions.
The pond was restocked with a mix of blue gills, hybrid blue gills ( a cross with sun fish) , bass and minnows. This is a recommended mix for a 1/2 acre midwest pond.
