Chicago Fishes

Chicago Riverwalk

As part of the City of Chicago's 2017 Riverwalk Oktoberfest, 200 people will grab their poles and lures to take part in the first "Chicago Fishes" event!
Join us and our partners on Friday, October 13, on the Riverwalk between Franklin and Lake Streets. There is no charge to attend, and a limited number of poles and free bait will be provided. After the event, we'll adjourn to the Bridgehouse Museum for drinks and food. 
Don't miss this attempt at the biggest fishing outing in Chicago history!
