Trout stocked for Junction City Pond youth fishing event

 
April 13, 2010

 

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Young people interested in catching a fish will find a great opportunity April 17, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Junction City Pond.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will stock more than 3,000 rainbow trout for the Junction City Moose Lodge’s annual youth fishing derby. The trout are provided for the event as part of the Department’s Youth Angling Enhancement Program. The trout come from ODFW’s Willamette Hatchery in Oakridge.

Rods, reels and bait will be available to those young anglers who do not have their own fishing equipment.

Anglers under the age of 14 can fish for free. A juvenile license is required for anglers 14-17 years of age.

To ensure enough fish will be available for the event, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife would like to ask the general public to refrain from fishing the pond before Saturday’s event.

Junction City Pond is an 8-acre pond located about two miles south of Junction City on Highway 99W on the west side of the highway.
