Family Fishing Events

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) invite you to introduce youth to the fun of fishing through Family Fishing Days.

Family Fishing Events offer a host of fishing opportunities at stocked ponds throughout the state. On-site ODFW staff and volunteers provide equipment, teach youth how to bait and cast, and help kids "reel in" their catch. Adults can get tips on basic rigging, fish identification and casting. The program provides a unique opportunity for families to learn how to fish together and discover just how much fun it can be! Licenses are required for anyone 12 years and older, and are not available at the events. If you need a fishing license you may purchase one online.
