Youth fishing event scheduled for June 20 near Bend

June 12, 2009


BEND, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites young anglers to a youth fishing event Saturday, June 20 at Century Pond from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free and ODFW staff and volunteers will be there to help young people who want to learn how to fish.

“This event is specifically for kids,” said Ted Wise, ODFW fisheries. “We want to encourage kids as they learn to fish and hope they come to enjoy fishing as a lifelong sport.”

“There will be lots of families looking for things to do over Father’s Day weekend and many parents enjoy this event as much as the kids,” he added.

ODFW will provide equipment including rods, reels and bait. Staff and volunteers will be there to answer questions and help beginning anglers.

There also will be volunteers teaching fly-fishing for kids who’d like to try their hand at casting and fishing with a fly rod.

ODFW will stock 400 legal-sized and a number of trophy-sized and brood-sized rainbow trout into Century Pond prior to the event. Anglers 13 years of age and under can fish for free.  A juvenile angling license is required for youth 14-17 years of age.  All state angling regulations apply for this event.

Century Pond is located approximately 46 miles southwest of Bend, ¼ mile west of the  Forest Road 46 (Century Drive) and Forest Road 4635 intersection. For additional information, contact ODFW at (541) 388-6363.
