Folks should bring their own fishing gear and bait, but organizers will have some extra bait. It's a rain or shine event..
Participants are also welcome to stay, after the event, and continue to fish. "The Arboretum is beautiful this time of year," organizers note. "Bring some sandwiches and drinks, and stay to enjoy a picnic lunch."
