Free youth fishing event Saturday at Trojan Pond

April 21, 2010


CLACKAMAS Ore. — Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is hosting a free youth angling event Saturday, April 24 at Trojan Pond near Rainier.

ODFW will stock more than 3,000 rainbow trout for the event. The department will also supply rods, reels and tackle for use by young anglers without fishing equipment. ODFW staff and volunteers will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to answer questions and offer assistance to less experienced youth anglers. The event is free to the public.

“This is a great way to get the family out and moving,” said Jeff Fulop, youth fishing event coordinator for ODFW’s North Willamette Watershed District. “These events give parents an opportunity see how fun a day of fishing with the kids can be. Mom and Dad can even let the kids bring home dinner!”

This is one of 33 youth fishing events across the state that ODFW will host this year. The statewide program was made possible through a $25,000 appropriation from the Oregon Legislature.

Under Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, anglers aged 13 and under do not require a license, while those 14-17 must have a juvenile license, which can be purchased for $9 from ODFW offices and license outlets.

Trojan Pond is a 15-acre lake located on the north side of Highway 30 in Prescott, just southeast of Rainier.
