ODFW to host free youth fishing event on May 16

May 8, 2015

BEND, Ore. – Join the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for a free youth fishing event at Bend’s Pine Nursery Pond on Saturday, May 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

ODFW staff and volunteers will be on hand to help young anglers learn how to bait a hook, cast a rod and even land a fish. Tackle, and loaner rods and reels will be available, and there will be fish in the pond for kids to catch.

The event is open to youth 17 years old and younger. No fishing license is required for youngsters age 13 and younger; youth 14-17 will need to have a juvenile fishing license. Licenses should be purchased prior to the event as they will not be available at the event itself.

The Bend Pine Nursery Community Park is located in NE Bend. From Hwy 97, take the Empire Blvd. exit and head east on Empire Blvd. 1.5 miles. Turn left on Purcell for 1500 feet and turn right just before Ponderosa Elementary School.
