Independence, Kansas, May 10, 2018 – One of the attractions of Independence Community College (ICC) is its scenic rural setting. The 68-acre campus sits amidst rolling hills, an 18-hole disc golf course, and a 2-acre community pond. Fishing at the ICC community pond will be free on June 2-3, as part of the State of Kansas’ Free Fishing Weekend.

On Free Fishing Weekend in Kansas, typically the first weekend in June, anglers don’t need a license to fish any public Kansas waters, including the pond at ICC. Normally, anyone 16 years-old and older are required to have a fishing license while angling on public waters.

The pond at ICC was designated a public fishing pond in 2016 when the Kansas Wildlife Department started stocking the waters with catfish.

“We encourage the community to come out to our beautiful campus and take advantage of all the amenities, from the Fab Lab to fishing - everyone is welcome,” said Brad Henderson, director of public relations at ICC.

The pond is located on the northern side of the campus and visitors are encouraged to park in parking lots C or D. A map of the campus is available online at
