You’d rather be fishing. Do it for free with the kids (15 and under) on Sundays, 10 a.m.–2:00 p.m. with the Lend-A-Rod program at Chollas Lake. The program is sponsored by San Diego Fly Fishers. Head over to the south side of the lake with a picture ID, and they’ll lend your child a rigged rod. After that, kids get to scoop live worms from a bin; casting lessons are available, if needed. Fish anywhere along the edge of the 16-acre man-made lake, and if you catch a big one, you might get your picture added to the lake’s Big Fish Book. Free classes every Sunday at 1:00 p.m. cover both equipment and technique: sandiego.gov/park-and-recreation/centers/chollas.
