ODFW to host youth angling event at St. Louis Ponds

 
April 6, 2010

 

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites young anglers to take part in its Youth Angling Enhancement Program fishing event Saturday, April 10 at St. Louis Ponds from 9 a.m. to 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 for the event. The department will also provide equipment including rods, reels and bait. Angling Education Instructors will be present to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced youth anglers. While St. Louis Ponds is open to anglers of all ages, ODFW asks that adults leave the fishing to the kids Friday and Saturday.

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, which are available for $9 at ODFW field offices and license outlets.

St. Louis Ponds is a 54-acre complex of seven 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. The ponds are located 13 miles north of Salem and west of Interstate 5. To get to there 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.
