ODFW to host youth fishing event April 9 in Cottage Grove
March 29, 2011


SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Families interested in angling can find a great fishing opportunity Saturday, April 9 at Cottage Grove Pond in Cottage Grove.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has contracted with Desert Springs Fish Hatchery to release 1,550 rainbow trout into Cottage Grove Pond, including 50 “one pounders” as part of the Family Fishing Event. These fish are in addition to several other trout releases at Cottage Grove Pond in the past month, and some of those fish should still be available. ODFW staff and volunteers will be on hand from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide access to fishing equipment and angling instruction.

Under Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, anglers under the age of 13 can fish for free. A juvenile license is required for anglers 14-17 years of age. Juvenile angling licenses can be purchased for $9 from ODFW field offices and license outlets. All other anglers must have an Oregon adult fishing license.

“This event is for kids, so while the standard fishing regulations will apply, we would like to ask adults to leave the fishing to the young ones for a few hours,” said Erik Moberly, ODFW biologist.

Cottage Grove Pond is located off Row River Road east of Cottage Grove. From I-5, take the Cottage Grove exit (Exit 174). Head east on Row River Road about 1.5 miles. Turn north into the Cottage Grove Ponds parking area near the weigh station
