ODFW to host youth angling event in Fairview

 
September 22, 2009

 

FAIRVIEW, Ore. — Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is hosting a free youth angling event Saturday, Sept. 26 at West Salish Pond.  

ODFW will stock the pond with 1,200 legal size rainbow trout and 1,000 larger trout, ranging from 1 to 1 ½ pounds. The department will also supply rods and reels for the day in addition to bait, tackle and fish bags for use by young anglers who do not have their own fishing equipment. ODFW staff and volunteers will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced anglers. The event is free to the public. 

“This is a good opportunity to come out to one of our most popular ponds and get in some trout fishing while the weather is still good and the fish are biting,” said Jeff Fulop, Salmon-Trout Enhancement Program biologist for ODFW’s North Willamette Watershed District.

West Salish Pond is located behind Salish Elementary School in Salish Ponds Wetlands Park in Fairview on N.E. Glisan Street, between 201st and 207th Ave. From I-84 take 207th Avenue Exit and head south to Glisan, then turn right.
