ODFW to host youth angling event at St. Louis Ponds

 
October 6, 2009

 

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites young anglers to take part in its Youth Angling Enhancement Program fishing event Saturday, October 10 at St. Louis Ponds. Gates will open at 9 a.m. and close at 2 p.m. The event is free and ODFW staff and volunteers will be on hand to assist youngsters who want to learn how to fish.

ODFW will release approximately 2,000 rainbow trout in Pond #6 for the event. The department will also provide equipment including rods, reels and bait. Angling Education Instructors will present to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced youth anglers.

Under Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, anglers ages 13 and under can fish for free while those 14-17 will need to have a juvenile angling license. All fishing regulations continue to apply during this event.

St. Louis Ponds is a 54-acre complex of 7 ponds owned and managed by ODFW. In addition to stocked trout, the ponds contain several species of warmwater fish, including largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie and sunfish.

St. Louis Ponds are located 13 miles north of Salem and west of Interstate 5. To get to St. Louis Ponds from I-5, take the Woodburn exit. Then go east to Hwy. 99E. At Hwy. 99E, head south to Gervais Road. Go west on Gervais Road through the town of Gervais. The road eventually changes to St Louis Road. Continue west on St Louis Road as it crosses over I-5 to Tesch Road, at the railroad crossing. Go left on Tesch Road and follow the signs to the ponds.
