Salem, Ore. -Hey kids are you looking for a great fishing opportunity? Then join Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife June 16 at Century Pond for a youth angling event.
The pond will be stocked with 400 legal-sized and 100 trophy-sized rainbow trout. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. All anglers 17 years of age and younger are invited to attend. Volunteers will be available to help kids learn to fish or improve their existing skills. Anglers 13 years of age and under can fish for free. A juvenile angling license is required for youth 14-17 years of age. All state angling regulations apply for this event.
“This event is specifically for the kids,” said Ted Wise, assistant district fish biologist. “We want to encourage kids as they learn to fish and we hope they enjoy an activity that provides lifelong recreation.”
