Fishing

All state fishing regulations apply; individuals between ages 16-65 need a valid fishing license, (15 and under do not need a license) which can be purchased through Illinois Department of Natural Resources or at local retail outlets. Naperville Park District’s rules for fishing can be found in Section 2.19 of Ordinance 641. Fishing is also available on the banks of the DuPage River.

Upcoming Improvements/Construction

Pond Dredging and Shoreline Restoration Project

Project Background.  Silt has filled the retention pond over the years, degrading the water quality and the pond’s capacity to hold stormwater and prevent flooding. The invasive trees that have grown and spread along the pond’s shoreline do not hold soil in place, rather, they allow for the erosion of soil into the pond. 

Project Description and Timeline. Naperville Park District is partnering with DuPage County Stormwater Management Department and its contractors to restore the pond and its shoreline.

  • Phase 1 - Remove the invasive and declining trees along the shoreline. This work was completed in winter 2023/2024.
  • Phase 2 - Remove the silt that has filled the retention pond over the years that collects and prevents stormwater from entering residential properties. This work requires the water level in the pond to be lowered temporarily in order for the contractors to access and stabilize the shoreline.  See below the images of a similar shoreline restoration and pond dredging project completed nearby at Brook Crossings in 2021 and 2023.

    

  • Phase 3 - Stabilize the slopes of the shoreline and plant native vegetation immediately following Phase 2 to prevent erosion in the future. A berm will be formed with silt collected from the basin, between the pond and 75th Street, to create a landscaped buffer and enhance the view toward 75th Street. The Park District installed new trees throughout the park in anticipation of this work.  Some of the existing trees will be reinstalled along the new berm area.  In addition, new trees are planned to be added for this same area.  The Phase 3 work is scheduled to be completed this summer/fall.
