Go Fish! Cranberry Hosting Event for Kids at Graham Park Pond

Volunteers will teach basic fishing skills at the event.

Something is fishy in Cranberry.

The township will host a new educational fishing event for children ages 5 through 12 on Saturday, April 6 at the one-acre lake in Graham Park.

After months of construction, the lake opened for the first time last fall.

Experienced volunteers will supervise the April 6 event and also will help teach basic fishing skills, along with these fishing rules from the township.

  • The fishing lake is strictly recreational, catch-and-release only. Any fish caught will be immediately returned to the water.
  • No trophy fishing, food fishing, or fish cleaning is allowed.
  •  No one can have more than two fishing lines in the water at once.  
  • No type of fishing would harm the pond's bass and bluegill is permitted.  
  • No live bait other than earthworms is allowed.
  •  Barb-less hooks or hooks that have had their barbs blunted are strongly recommended.

Two 75-minute fishing sessions will be held the morning of April 6, with the first beginning at 8 a.m. and another starting at 9:45 a.m.

Those participating in the event will need to bring their own fishing gear. No fishing license is required.

A $7 program fee is payable at the time of registration. In-person enrollment is available at the information desk of the parks & recreation department located inside the Cranberry Municipal Building, by phone at 724-776-4806 x1129, or online at the township's website.
