Update, April 2, 2022 / Early this morning a bike-peddling young angler with a tackle box and fishing pole was headed to Lake Osborne “behind the firehouse.” One of PN’s most popular posts on this website is a showcase of fishing spots and some really big fish!
Anytime you’re fishing for Naperville locations to catch a big one, simply search “fishing” on this website and plenty of places, complete with pictures, will appear where all ages are welcome to enjoy the popular pastime.
