ODFW to host youth angling event at Canby Pond
 
March 23, 2010

 

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites young anglers to take part in the Youth Angling Enhancement Program Saturday, March 27 at Canby Pond from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is free and ODFW staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide instruction to participating youths.

ODFW will stock the pond with approximately 1,000 rainbow trout, including about 250 that weigh more than 2 pounds each. ODFW will provide equipment including rods, reels and bait. Angling education instructors will also be available to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced youth anglers.

“This is a great opportunity for families to have some fun and for kids to learn how to fish,” said Todd Alsbury, district fish biologist for the North Willamette Watershed.

Canby Pond one of Oregon’s only youth-only fishing venues. It is open to youngsters ages 17 and under as well as persons with disabilities who possess a current Oregon Disabilities Hunting and Fishing Permit.

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 can be purchased for $9 at any ODFW office, most sporting goods stores and on-line at ODFW’s website. All fishing regulations continue to apply during this event.

Canby Pond is 1-acre in size and located at Canby Community Park in the southwest portion of Canby. Access the park by traveling south from Highway 99E on SW Berg Parkway.
