BEND, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a youth fishing event at the Pine Nursery Pond on Saturday, May 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free and no registration is required.

The event is part of the ODFW Outdoors Program and is designed to introduce young people and their families to the fun of fishing. ODFW will provide rods, reels, tackle and bait for use by youngsters who are learning to fish or do not have their own fishing equipment.  Participants are also welcome to bring their own equipment.

ODFW staff and volunteers will be on site to help participants learn how to bait the hook, cast the rod and land the fish. ODFW will be stocking the pond with 600 legal-sized rainbow trout for the event, in addition to the bluegills already in pond.

All anglers 17 years of age and younger are invited to attend. Anglers 13-years and younger can fish for free.  A juvenile angling license is required for youth 14 to 17-years-old.  There is a two fish per day limit.

The Pine Nursery Pond is located in Pine Nursery Park in northeast Bend between Purcell, Deschutes Market and Yeoman road. From Hwy 97, take Empire Blvd exit. Head East on Empire Blvd 1.5 miles and turn left on Purcell. Turn right just before Ponderosa Elementary School and follow the park road to pond.
