ODFW to host youth angling event at Vernonia Pond

 
April 21, 2010

 

TILLAMOOK, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites young anglers to take part in its Youth Angling Enhancement Program Saturday, May 1 at Vernonia Pond 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.

The lake will be stocked with approximately 3,500 legal size and 50 larger (about 1 pound each) rainbow trout just prior to the event.

ODFW will provide equipment including rods, reels and bait. Angling Education Instructors and volunteers will be present to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced youth anglers.

“This is an excellent opportunity for kids to discover fishing,” said Ron Rehn, STEP biologist for ODFW’s North Coast Watershed. “We’ll have plenty of experienced staff and anglers at the event to answer any questions and provide instruction.”

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.

Vernonia Pond is a -acre pond located in the city of Vernonia. From Hwy 26 west of Portland, take Hwy. 47 north to Vernonia. Follow the highway through town to the pond, which is in a city park just east of the road.
