ODFW to host youth fishing event in Cottage Grove

 
April 1 , 2010

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Young people interested in angling can find a great fishing opportunity Saturday, April 10, at Cottage Grove Pond in Cottage Grove.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will release 1,550 rainbow trout into Cottage Grove Pond, including 50 “one pounders” as part of the Youth Angling Enhancement Program event. These fish are in addition to scheduled release of 2,000 fish. ODFW staff and volunteers will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide access to fishing equipment and angling instruction. Contact the Springfield ODFW office at 541-726-3515 for more information.

Under Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, anglers under the age of 13 can fish for free. A juvenile license is required for anglers 14-17 years of age. Juvenile angling licenses can be purchased for $9 from ODFW field offices and license outlets. All other anglers must have an Oregon adult fishing license. All fishing regulations continue to apply.

“This event is for kids, so while the standard fishing regulations will apply, we would like to ask adults to leave the fishing to the young ones for a few days,” said Erik Moberly, ODFW biologist.

Cottage Grove Pond is located off Row River Road east of Cottage Grove. From I-5, take the Cottage Grove exit (Exit 174). Head east on Row River Road about 1.5 miles. Turn north into the Cottage Grove Ponds parking area near the weigh station
